To an extent, the Lap Band/Realize Band can be reversed or even revised to a Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy or a Laparoscopic Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass. The Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass can even be reversed laparoscopically and can also be converted to a Sleeve. A Sleeve can be converted to a Laparoscopic Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass or Duodenal Switch, and a Duodenal Switch can also be reversed.
Revision surgery is very complex and requires individual counseling and a tailored approach. Our Bariatric Surgeons are happy to investigate the causes requiring revision and to explore different options individually with every patient.
