Bariatric surgery is usually the solution for people to achieve long-term weight loss. Most patients achieve their weight loss goals and enjoy their improved health and lifestyle. However, some patients consider revisional surgery if they haven’t reached their goals. There can be a variety of reasons why someone may consider a revision—inadequate weight loss, weight re-gain, unresolved health problems, or complications.
Our first step in evaluating someone for revisional surgery is to try and see if the original bariatric surgery procedure can work. We try to refocus the patient on proper food choices and exercise habits and provide education that they may be lacking if they had surgery elsewhere. For some patients, that is all that is needed. But some patients have issues that will require a revision. We are here to help. We will meet with you and discuss all the available options. Our goal is to get you healthy.
Our revisional surgery patients come to us from Greensboro, High Point, Kernersville, Winston-Salem, Burlington and close-by communities.
