Revisional surgery is a specialized field within bariatric surgery that focuses on customizing procedures to address the unique needs and conditions of each patient. It serves as a lifeline for individuals who have undergone previous weight loss surgeries and are seeking further modifications or improvements. At Mid-Atlantic Surgical Group, we understand that the path to sustained weight loss and improved health is not always straightforward. Our team of experienced surgeons is dedicated to providing personalized revisional surgeries that align with your health goals.
One of the most common revisional surgeries involves the removal of a Lap Band, followed by a conversion to either a Sleeve Gastrectomy or a Gastric Bypass. This approach allows for adjustments that better suit the patient's evolving health needs. Additionally, other revisional surgeries may include converting from a Sleeve Gastrectomy to a Gastric Bypass or to a Duodenal Switch. These conversions are carefully considered based on individual circumstances, ensuring that each patient receives the most appropriate and effective treatment.
As with any surgical procedure, a revisional surgery comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. The specific benefits and potential drawbacks can vary, depending on the procedure being converted from and the one being adopted. It is crucial to discuss these details with your healthcare provider to make an informed decision. At Mid-Atlantic Surgical Group, we prioritize patient education, ensuring that you have a thorough understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of revisional surgeries and how they relate to your unique situation.
