The surgeons at Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist perform bariatric surgery revisions for patients, who have experienced problems from their initial procedure, including:
- Surgical nonresponse or significant weight recurrence
- Chronic nausea and/or intolerance of the previous surgery
- Ulcers, band slippage, or other procedure-related complications
- Nutritional deficiencies or excessive weight loss
Revisions are for people who are still 100 pounds or more over ideal body weight, suffering from serious weight-related concerns, or are having difficulties from their initial weight loss surgery.
