Reasons to Consider a Gastric Bypass Revision

A gastric bypass revision can be right for you if you have undergone a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and are experiencing:

Gastric Bypass Revision Options

At the Center for Weight Loss Surgery, we are passionate about providing gastric bypass revision options for you. Our most common gastric bypass revision procedures include:

  • Gastric bypass to duodenal switch:  The duodenal switch is another popular and effective Roux-en-Y gastric bypass revision surgery. The gastric pouch is re-attached to the excluded stomach, which is then trimmed to create a small tubular stomach (i.e., a sleeve gastrectomy). Calorie absorption is limited by dividing the duodenum and attaching the bottom portion of the small intestine to it, bypassing the rest.
  • Gastric bypass to single anastomosis duodeno-ileostomy switch (SADI/SIPS): This is a newer variation of the duodenal switch. We first create a gastric sleeve, as described above. We then limit calorie absorption by dividing the duodenum and attaching a loop of small intestine, bypassing the rest.
  • Gastric bypass to malabsorptive gastric bypass: In a traditional proximal gastric bypass, only one-fourth of the small intestine is bypassed. A malabsorptive gastric bypass limits more calorie absorption by bypassing more of the small intestine. 
  • Adjustable gastric band around the pouch of the gastric bypass: This revision procedure restores restriction from a pouch that has enlarged or one where the opening out of the pouch (stoma) has dilated.
