Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Surgery

If you have had a gastric bypass or duodenal switch operation, and you are struggling to maintain your weight loss we can help. We have a great deal of experience and success in Revision Surgeries. Consult with us and we will help to identify issues and correct them as best we can.

At JSAPA we do not believe that the Gastric Bypass or Duodenal Switch operations should be performed in Human Beings. While these sugeries may be transiently effective resulting in significant weight loss, the risk of severe medium and long term complications as well as death are excessive relative to the simpler, safer but equally effective surgical options like the sleeve gastrectomy and LapBand. We DO NOT advocate for or perform gastric bypass or duodenal switch operations as a primary weight loss solution even though we are very experienced in these surgical techniques.

If you have had a gastric bypass or duodenal switch operation, and you are struggling to maintain your weight loss or are having complications from the surgery or may be malnourished, we have significant experience in helping you to get back on track, restore your health or deal with the surgical complications using revisional surgery.

Revision Surgeries: we have a great deal of experience in identifying, diagnosing and treating surgical complications no matter what surgery you have had elsewhere. If you are concerned there may be a problem with your obesity surgery, consult with us and we will help to identify issues and correct them as best we can.
