Many patients suffer after undergoing less than optimal surgeries in the past.
Ineffective Gastric Bands, Vertical Banded Gastroplasties, Silastic Rings, Marlex Bands, etc. can be removed or modified and converted to other more beneficial procedures.
With advances in technology and science, we now better understand the appropriate dimensions of surgical anatomy for improved weight loss.
Previous procedures that have become ineffective can be optimized and "tunned" laparoscopically with minimal down time.
