Laparoscopic Revision of Prior Procedures





Visit us at our new website



From time to time it is necessary to convert previously performed weight loss procedures to other weight loss procedures.  Although this is only necessary in a few percentage of cases it is important to be associated with a program that has a broad experience in dealing with these complex cases.  These conversions might be necessary for a variety of reasons:

  • Complications from the prior procedure such as gastric outlet obstruction due to ulcer or stricture
  • Band Slippage or erosion
  • Inadequate weight loss or weight regain

We specialize in, and have a broad experience in laparoscopic conversion of:

  • Vertical Band Gastroplasty (stomach stapling) to Gastric bypass or Vertical Sleeve Gastrcectomy
  • Vertical sleeve gastrectomy to gastric bypass
  • Gastric Bypass to doudenal Switch
  • Revision of gastric bypass to revise the pouch or anastomosis
  • Conversion of gastric banding to gastric bypass or vertical sleeve
  • Endoscopic Revision of Gastric bypass pouch/stoma (ROSE procedure)
