Surgery patients are not always successful in reaching their weight loss goals.
Reasons for post-operative weight loss failure can include problems with the original surgery, as well as patient inability to comply with necessary life style changes.
We specialise in working with patients who have already had weight loss surgery but are looking for another solution as their original surgery has not been a success, for whatever reason.
Preventing complications, managing complications and managing patients post operatively are all equally challenging aspects of care to us at the WLS group and we love a challenge !
We can offer one to one consultations to patients with post-surgery weight loss failure to discuss conversion surgery further.
Patients are screened carefully to determine cause of failure and are medically evaluated prior to any further surgery taking place. You can choose to convert from gastric band to gastric bypass or gastric sleeve.
Gastric bypass patients may also choose to have a gastric band if they are experiencing pouch dilatation. We also ensure you receive comprehensive guidelines for post-surgical compliance appropriate to the procedure you have chosen to have – it need to work for you.
