Some people need to have their weight loss surgery reversed for medical reasons. This type of surgery is rare. Revisional surgery on patients who have had prior weight loss surgery may be necessary due to:
- Weight regain
- Mechanical issues within the gastrointestinal system
Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System’s bariatric surgeon has comprehensive experience performing weight loss surgery revisions for patients who have undergone prior procedures such as:
- Vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG)
- Gastric bypass
- Sleeve gastrectomy
- Adjustable gastric band surgery
Our healthcare providers evaluate patients who live in the Upstate of South Carolina as well as throughout the Southeastern United States to see if they are candidates for revision weight loss surgery.
Minimally Invasive Revision Weight Loss Surgery
A majority of revisional surgeries can be done laparoscopically (minimally invasive method) and with minimal complications.
