There a number of reasons why a patient might seek the Lap Band surgery after gastric bypass. The initial gastric bypass procedure might have fallen short of the patient’s weight loss goals because a) the stomach opening expanded, b) the stomach pouch stretched, c) the small intestine adapted to the procedure and started absorbing calories more efficiently, or d) the patient developed ulcers. People interested in the Lap Band surgery after gastric bypass should consult with the experts at Dr. Feiz & Associates, the most distinguished medical center for both Lap Band surgery and gastric sleeve surgery.
The Lap Band is the preferred option for patient who are unwilling or unable to undergo more invasive surgery like gastric bypass. The procedure is usually performed laparoscopically, though Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., FACS is one of the few bariatric surgeons in the nation who can do it with EVEN LESS cutting (he uses the STARR Treatment, which requires only A SINGLE INCISION to the abdominal wall). No cutting to internal organs is necessary, and the Lap Band itself is both adjustable and reversible.
