Sometimes, an initial procedure may need to be revised. Reasons for revision include:
- Mechanical failure of surgery
- Regaining original weight lost
- Failure of gastric banding including slippage of band or erosion/infection.
Our surgeons have performed hundreds of revision surgeries, giving our patients successful outcomes. Many times, a revision is exactly what a patient needs in order to be successful in their weight loss goals.
Pre-operative diagnostic tests may include:
- Upper GI
- Blood Work
