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 revision surgery including: failure to lose weight, complications from previous surgery, and management of reflux/diabetes.

This could be a patient who may have had:

  1. lap band to lap sleeve gastrectomy
  2. lap band to lap gastric bypass surgery
  3. lap sleeve to lap gastric bypass etc.

Any revisional surgery carries exactly the same risks as if the same procedure/operation would be done first up, but with the risks of adhesions, altered surgical anatomy and the need for open surgery, the risks are HIGHER.
