Revisional Weight Loss Surgery
Revisional weight loss surgery refers to individuals who have already undergone a bariatric procedure and are seeking additional bariatric surgery to address any number of symptoms. Some may have weight regain, heartburn, nutritional deficiencies, abdominal pain or feel that the original operation is no longer serving them as well as it did initially.
Obesity is a chronic disease and thus requires constant care and attention. Most often when undergoing bariatric surgery, patients are successful with weight loss and maintenance. Overtime however if you are distracted from maintaining your weight loss efforts or if circumstances change in your health and life, some people may experience weight regain. If this happens to you, do not feel ashamed or think you are a failure. This is the time to contact us so we can discuss how we can help you.

Everybody has a different set of circumstances, so we will take everything into consideration from your medical history, current state of health, lifestyle, and personal preferences.
