Revisional Surgery

Why is Revisional Surgery Needed?

Some weight-loss surgeries have associated complications that may require additional surgery.

The good news is that a new, non-invasive procedure called StomaphyX® is now available. The procedure is designed to give those patients who have regained weight after weight loss surgery a second chance. The StomaphyX can prevent hunger and help improve your chance for long-term weight loss success.

The procedure uses the StomaphyX device, which allows doctors to perform the procedure without any external or internal incisions. The benefits of this procedure include:

  • No need for surgical incisions
  • Enables the surgeon to reduce the size of the stomach
  • Preserves future treatment options
  • Essentially no pain for the patient
  • Faster recovery than with open or laparoscopic procedures

Reasons for revision of a LAP-BAND® may include:

  • Band slippage/pouch dilatation
  • Obstruction of the stomach-band outlet
  • Esophageal dilatation or poor esophageal function
  • Leak or twist at the access port
  • Band erosion into the stomach
  • Port displacement, port site pain
  • A problem with the band or initial surgery

Reasons for revision of a gastric bypass or gastric sleeve may include:

  • Leaks
  • Bleeding
  • Hernias
  • Obstruction
  • Stricture
