Weight loss surgery - revision surgeries

Sometimes patients who have had prior gastric restrictive procedures (such as laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding) must have a second surgery to correct problems with the original surgery. This is called a revision of gastric restrictive procedures.

Patients may be interested in knowing which weight loss surgeries are performed the most frequently.
