If you have had a gastric bypass or gastric sleeve and have experienced weight regain there are options for you!

If you have had a gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy, either laparoscopic or open and you were initially successful but now have experienced weight regain and are discouraged we are here to tell you there is hope for and there are options.

Sometimes the gastric pouch, in the sleeve can enlarge or the gastric pouch in the bypass may stretch. These can be surgically revised. This can usually be done laparoscopically even if your previous surgery was open.

Both your pouch and opening to your intestine (stoma) can be reduced in size so that you can relose the weight and comorbidties. In addition, sometimes your intestinal absorptive capacity can be further modified.

Both Dr. Domkowski and Dr. Radecke specialize in revising gastric bypasses or gastric sleeves.. Before your surgery we will need to preform some tests to understand your previous surgery, but they are done on an outpatient basis.

Make an appointment today to see if you are a candidate for a revision of your gastric bypass!

We are a Regional Referral Center for Revisional Bariatric Surgery throughout the state of Florida.

Riverside Surgical and Weight Loss Center was established over 6 years ago with the vision of helping people realize their goals of significant and lasting weight reduction through minimally invasive bariatric surgery. We are proud to offer a full array of the latest and safest medical technology in bringing about weight reduction. As board certified surgeons, specializing in bariatrics Dr. Domkowski and Dr. Radecke are privileged to offer both primary surgery for weight reduction as well as conversion and revisional surgery for patients that have already had a weight loss procedure and would like it converted to another type of operation. For example, someone that has had a gastric bypass and experienced weight regain, then they may be a candidate to have a laparoscopic adjustable gastric band placed on their gastric pouch. Dr. Domkowski and Dr. Radecke are committed to keeping up with the latest advances in bariatric surgery and attends several meetings annually. He does this not only to keep up with the more current information, but also so that the latest technology can be offered to his patients.
