Bariatric Revision and Conversion Surgery
For a variety of reasons a small number of patients may experience the need for a revision or conversion of their original bariatric operation. Sometimes individuals benefit from an additional procedure to relieve symptoms of pain or nausea or if they have not successfully achieved significant lasting weight loss.
A revision will retain and modify your original procedure, while a conversion will replace an unsatisfactory procedure with a different one. Our Foothills Weight Loss Surgeons are experienced in the revision and conversion or previous weight loss surgery. They can evaluate a patient’s situation and recommend appropriate treatment for you.
