This session will address revision of bariatric operations in patients who do not achieve long-term success. The session will focus on practical technical details of revisional operations and discuss expected outcomes. It will be of interest to surgeons, physicians, and integrated health professionals who provide longitudinal care to post-bariatric surgery patients.


Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:

  • Identify metrics that indicate failure of bariatric operations
  • Understand the options for specific failed bariatric procedures
  • Identify and avoid potential complications of revisional bariatric surgery
