Not all weight loss surgery is the same. Procedures that were the gold standard even 15 years ago may no longer be recognized as the standard of care. Dr. Billy is capable of revising most failed weight loss operations. Revision surgery is not to be taken lightly as some revision procedures can be complicated. For those patients who may think that revision surgery is right for them, Dr. Billy can explain the available options and technological advances in bariatric revision surgery.
Ventura Advanced Surgical Associates has experience in revising multiple bariatric procedures and offers revision of vertical banded gastroplasty to gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, Band-over bypass or revision of dilated, stretched gastric bypass. Dr. Billy has remained on the cutting edge of available medical technologies and offers the newest techniques including the “Rose Procedure”. Most procedures can be completed laparoscopically. The Rose procedure is an entirely endoscopic procedure and requries no incisions or hospitalization.
