Gastric Band to Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Laparoscopic Revision: Gastric Band to Gastric Sleeve

Revision weight loss surgery is an option for patients who need to have a previous procedure repaired or changed in favour of a more suitable option. The need for revision surgery usually follows complications associated with the original procedure or poor weight loss or weight regain. Fortunately, complications associated with gastric band and gastric sleeve are rare; however, it is important to have a credible, reliable, and experienced weight loss surgeon and clinical support team.
