Revision surgery is performed to modify or change a prior bariatric surgery. The main reasons for revision surgery are:
- Complications from the original procedure
- Failure to lose weight
- Regaining weight after initial weight loss
- Intolerable side effects, such as malnutrition
Experienced bariatric surgeons at Goshen Physicians Center for Weight Reduction offer several types of revision surgery, including gastric bypass revision and sleeve gastrectomy revision.
In most cases, revision surgery results in a significant decrease in body mass index (BMI) and resolves nutritional complications. You can receive revision surgery at the Center for Weight Reduction whether or not your original surgery was performed here. Our integrated care team can determine if you’re a candidate and help you understand revision surgery risks and complications in Goshen, IN.
