Revisional Surgery

Revisional Surgery

Patients who have had previous weight loss surgery occasionally require revision. This may be required if there are medical complications, inadequate weight loss or weight re-gain.  Revisional surgery can help get a patient back on track with their weight loss goals.

Dr. Vohra’s  multi-disciplinary revisional program provides the latest surgical options along with nutritional and behavioral assessment and bariatric education specifically designed to address  the special needs of our patients for optimum success.
