Endoscopic Revisions in Tamarac, FL

What Is An Endoscopic Revision?

Endoscopic gastric bypass revision, also known as endoscopic revision, is a bariatric procedure offered at Fernando E Bayron MD for patients who have undergone gastric bypass surgery in the past and are starting to regain weight. While gastric bypass surgery is effective for many individuals, for some people, the gastric pouch can stretch out again in the years after their procedure, creating more room for food and weight gain. Endoscopic revision addresses this issue by suturing the pouch or the opening to the small intestine, closing up the space so you can once again feel satisfied with smaller portions. All of this is done without incisions, resulting in a smoother recovery period and no scarring. If you previously experienced gastric bypass surgery and have started to notice the weight coming back on, you may benefit from an endoscopic revision. Find out more about this procedure and other weight loss solutions we offer by scheduling an appointment at our bariatric practice in Tamarac, FL.

How Does An Endoscopic Revision Work?

Endoscopic revision is an outpatient procedure that is performed with general anesthesia for your comfort and safety. Once you are sedated, we'll carefully guide the endoscope (a thin, flexible tube) down your throat and into your stomach where we'll use the attached light and camera to guide the operation. Using the endoscope, we'll suture the stomach and/or opening to the small intestine to create a smaller food pouch. The procedure is minimally invasive and generally takes about an hour. Once we're done, you may need to stay overnight at the hospital so we can monitor your health. Recovery after endoscopic revision usually takes a few days. You'll need to stick to liquids or soft foods during this time to allow your stomach to heal.

Can endoscopic revision prevent weight regain permanently?

Endoscopic revision is designed to reduce the size of the gastric pouch and the opening to the small intestine to help patients feel fuller with smaller portions, aiding in weight management. While it can significantly contribute to preventing further weight regain by restoring the stomach's intended size, maintaining weight loss also depends on adopting long-term healthy lifestyle changes, including diet and exercise. It's not a permanent solution on its own, but it is a tool to help patients get back on track with their weight loss goals.

How quickly can I return to normal activities after an endoscopic revision?

Patients typically experience a quick recovery period after an endoscopic revision due to its minimally invasive nature. Most patients can return to their normal activities within a few days, although specific recovery times may vary. It's important to follow the post-procedure guidelines provided by Fernando E Bayron MD, which include dietary restrictions and gradually reintroducing regular foods to allow for proper healing.

Is follow-up care necessary after an endoscopic revision?

Yes, follow-up care is an essential part of the endoscopic revision process. After the procedure, patients will have follow-up appointments to monitor recovery, nutritional intake, and weight loss progress.
