Weight Loss Revision Surgery Rockhampton

Your New Health Starts Here

Bariatric surgery in Rockhampton has for many years been limited to Lap band and Gastric Sleeve surgery.  As a result, patients requiring or wishing to have Gastric Bypass surgery or whom required revision surgery from their Lap band or Gastric Sleeve needed to travel to other centres for revision surgery.

Dr Jason Wong is pleased to be able to offer patients from Rockhampton and the Capricorn Coast region advanced surgical options for individuals experiencing complications or inadequate results from their initial weight loss surgery.  With the support of local legendary surgery Dr Andrew Russell, Dr Wong is able to provide an outreach service in Rockhampton visiting every few months to consult and operate at Mater Private Hospital, Rockhampton.

The multidisciplinary care team behind Brisbane General & Obesity Surgery provides supportive care for patients to not just help them lose weight, but to improve their relationships with food, exercise, work, others and most of all, themselves.  Where patients have experienced weight-regain, it aims to help patients to overcome behavioural or lifestyle related problems that have contributed to the weight-regain.

What is Weight Loss Revision Surgery?

Weight loss revision surgery refers to any subsequent surgical procedure conducted after an initial weight-loss surgery. This secondary surgery addresses or improves the outcomes of the first procedure, which may not have met the patient’s health or weight loss goals, or to correct any complications that may have arisen. 

For example, a patient may have had previous sleeve gastrectomy, lap-band or endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG) surgery and be experiencing problems swallowing, reflux or regaining weight.

If there are anatomical problems and or medication has failed to resolve the symptoms, a further revision procedure can help to resolve symptoms, produce further weight loss or correct anatomical problems.

Why Might You Need Revision Surgery?

Common reasons for considering revision surgery include:

  • Reflux
  • Inadequate weight loss
  • Weight regain
  • Complications from the initial surgery such as strictures, ulcers, or problems with the surgical site itself, such as slippage in the case of gastric bands.
