Revision Procedures

About Revision Weight Loss Surgery

Although surgery offers the most consistent results to achieve weight loss goals, some patients may experience weight gain over time. For this reason, we perform a variety of revisional procedures.

These revisional procedures include:
  • Conversions from gastric bands to the sleeve or bypass
  • Conversions from sleeve to bypass or duodenal switch
  • Staged bypass to duodenal switch
  • Gastric bypass or sleeve modifications
  • Each revisional surgery is determined on a case-by-case basis.
  • The goal is to customize a procedure best suited to the patient’s specific needs and surgical history
If you had bariatric surgery and are not happy with your results, or you gained weight many years after surgery, the Emerson Health Center for Weight Loss can help with minimally invasive revision surgery.  Patients trust Emerson for advanced weight loss procedures and compassionate care.
