Bariatric Surgery Revisions
If you have previously undergone a weight loss procedure such as LAP-BAND, gastric sleeve, or gastric bypass and you now require bariatric revision surgery, we can help. As one of the most-respected bariatric surgery centers in NYC, we are able to offer patients a range of weight loss revision procedures designed to correct complications and unwanted side effects from bariatric surgery.
Because bariatric revision surgery requires extensive training and exceptional skill on the part of the surgeon, many practices do not do bariatric revision surgery; our group runs the course in how and what to do.
All weight loss surgery revisions are different. Here at Northern Westchester Hospital, our team of bariatric surgery experts take the time to carefully assess each patient personally. Our physicians take into consideration the reason why bariatric revision surgery is needed, and how to provide the patient with the best possible long-term outcome from the revision.
Reasons people seek bariatric revision surgery:
- Weight regain after gastric bypass surgery
- Failure to lose weight or symptoms following gastric banding
- Breakdown of staples causing fistula
- Stricture or ulcer
Our experienced, compassionate bariatric surgeons have undergone advanced-level training in bariatric revision surgery, and are among the most-respected weight loss surgeons in NYC.
