Procedure

Revision Surgery

Unfortunately there are patients who have to consider revision surgery for different reasons:

  1. Inadequate weight loss
  2. Unresolved co-morbidities
  3. Weight regain,
  4. Quality of life reduced due to new symptoms.
Experience Matters

Revisional bariatric operations are more complex and involve more risk than the initial surgery.

Not all bariatric surgeons have the training and experience to do revision surgery successfully. [1].

Surgeon skill and experience is one of the most important factors in patient outcomes.[2], [3], [4], [5].

Procedure

We believe revision surgeries are an opportunity to correct negative symptoms and achieve significant weight loss.

The specific strategy depends on the patient´s situation: the type of previous operation, symptoms and comorbidities.

Dr. Rumbaut has 16 years performing successful revision surgeries.
