robotic surgery

This procedure is defined as an operation after a patient has had a previous weight loss surgery.

The next procedure/operation that maybe considered is called Revisional surgery. There are a number of reasons why patients may need revisional  surgery including: failure to lose weight, complications from previous surgery, and management of reflux/diabetes.

This could be a patient who may have had previously:

  1. lap band surgery
  2. gastric sleeve surgery
  3. gastric bypass surgery
  4. vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG) surgery – was done in the 1990s.

Any revisional surgery carries increased risks. Dr. Ahmed strongly recommends patients have private health insurance before undergoing revisional surgery.
