Dr Kevin Dolan offers NO GAP gastric band removal
Gastric banding has been used for over twenty years as a tool for combating obesity and weight gain. However, some patients may experience acid reflux and vomiting following gastric banding and this can damage the oesophagus. Other patients may experience pain, inadequate weight loss or weight regain following gastric banding. All of these are indications for further investigation and removal of the gastric band.
If you are having trouble with your gastric band or are struggling with weight regain following gastric band surgery, removal of the band and a different revision weight-loss procedure could be an appropriate option for you.
10,000 Successful Weight Loss Procedures
Dr Dolan’s experience of revision procedures will help you decide whether further surgery is appropriate and which type of surgery would benefit you best. Dr Dolan has performed over 10,000 weight loss procedures, many of them being revision procedures.
What is Involved in Removal of the Gastric Band?
Dr Dolan will use the same incisions that were used in inserting the gastric band to remove it. Patients can go home the same day and require only two days off work.
What can I expect after my gastric band is removed?
Before you are discharged, you will receive detailed instructions to help you care for your incisions and surgical area, and your follow-up date with Dr Dolan. We will also prescribe medication to aid in the healing process and reduce the risk of infection. It’s essential that you follow all instructions carefully to ensure the best possible outcome.
Revision Weight Loss Surgery
A revision or second procedure will depend on the specific needs and health problems of the patient, but options include sleeve gastrectomy, mini gastric bypass and stomach intestinal pylorus surgery(SIPS), a new procedure which combines sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass.
Dr Dolan will discuss potential treatments with the patient and help them decide the surgical approach best suited to their circumstances.
