Now On-Demand: Bariatric Revision Surgery

Originally Broadcast Live -- Wednesday, January 20 -- The interesting and highly complex world of revisional bariatric surgery was discussed during a live webcast Wednesday, January 20. Participating faculty included Kelvin D. Higa, MD, FACS, from Fresno Heart and Surgical Hospital, Alan Wittgrove, MD, FACS, from Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, California, and Raul Rosenthal, MD, FACS, from the Cleveland Clinic Florida.

This engaging discussion provides the viewer with the surgeon's perspective on Bariatric/metabolic surgical interventions, and discusses the risks of inadequate weight loss, weight recidivism or complications that often necessitate secondary procedures. Revisions and/or re-interventions must address the complexity of the disease, patient compliance, as well as the effect of the original operation.
