Revision Bariatric Surgery
Your Solution for a Healthier Life
If you’ve ever tried to lose weight, you know how difficult it can be. You may experience some initial weight loss, only to regain the weight again after a short period of time. Perhaps you’ve even had gastric bypass or another weight-loss procedure that hasn’t been successful in the long term? At Valley Baptist, we understand your struggle and have a solution: Revision bariatric surgery.
Why Choose Revision Bariatric Surgery?
Revision bariatric surgery is effective in correcting complications from a previous weight-loss procedure or for enhancing weight loss results. For example, revision surgery can correct gastric bypass surgery that hasn’t been successful. Gastric bypass can fail for many reasons, the most common of which is gastric pouch dilation — an enlargement of the stomach pouch, which can make the surgery less effective.
Our doctors can “revise” the procedure by injecting a medicine that inflames the stomach pouch, or they can insert a StomaphyX device that folds the stomach pouch tissue. Both of these minimally invasive techniques reduce the volume of the stomach pouch back to the proper size.
