Conversion/Revision to Gastric Bypass Surgery After Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Weight-loss surgery is very effective when patients follow their dietary and exercise plans post surgery. This also includes taking the recommended Bariatric Supplements.
In some cases weight-loss surgeries fail to produce lasting results and the patient will regain weight. This is not always the patient’s fault. In rare cases the body does not respond well to the bariatric surgery.
In these rare cases if a sleeve gastrectomy surgery has failed to achieve weight loss a conversion to a gastric bypass procedure can be an effective alternative for additional weight loss. There are also some cases in which gastric sleeve surgery is revised/converted to duodenal switch surgery also known as SIPS.
