Revisional Bariatric Surgery in Tamarac, FL

What Is Revisional Bariatric Surgery?

Revisional bariatric surgery is a procedure that may be recommended if you have undergone weight loss surgery in the past but failed to see results. It may also be necessary if your previous bariatric surgery resulted in health complications, such as ulcers or tearing, that need to be addressed. At Fernando E Bayron MD, we perform revisional bariatric surgery using a sophisticated robotic-assisted system that offers greater precision and control with minimal scarring. This treatment is a complex procedure that should be carried out by a skilled and experienced surgeon so if you need revisional bariatric surgery, we urge you to reach out to our Tamarac, FL practice as soon as possible to discuss your options.

How Does Revisional Bariatric Surgery Work?

During your consultation, we'll discuss your prior surgery and any complications you might be dealing with. We may also perform x-rays or endoscopy to get a better look at your digestive organs. Depending on what we find and your surgical history, we may recommend a gastric bypass revision, gastric sleeve revision, or gastric band removal. Revisional bariatric surgery at Fernando E Bayron MD is performed using general anesthesia and the cutting-edge da Vinci® robotic surgical system to allow for a more comfortable, precise procedure. After your surgery, you'll likely need to rest at the hospital for a few days. As you recover, we can discuss further steps to help you heal and manage your weight.
