Failed Weight-Loss Surgery? Learn Your Revision Options

You’ve had weight loss surgery, but those pounds are slowing coining back. What happened?  Well, in short, there are many reasons working in concert to cause weight regain.  A study in Canada found that 27% of weight loss surgery patients needed further surgery to achieve and maintain their goals.  There are as many different reasons why a weight loss surgery fails as there are people who suffer from morbid obesity.  If you have had a previous bariatric surgery such as Gastric Banding, (LapBand), Gastric Sleeve, and maybe even RNY Gastric Bypass,  there may be surgical options for you.  

Dr. David L Chengelis, MD, FACS, Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery, PC has nearly two decades of experience in bariatric surgery.    He can discuss if revision surgery is the right choice for you and help you make a decision on the best choice.
