Jamie Loggins, MD FACS FASMBS. Central Maine Medical Center

 

With the demand for weight loss surgery increasing, surgeons are likely to encounter with increasing frequency patients desiring these operations who have had previous foregut surgery.  This creates a "revisional surgery" situation, significantly increasing the technical difficulty of the procedure.  Presented for your review is a technique I have developed with a series of 15 conversions first taking down the Nissen Fundoplication then performing a retrocolic, retrogastric Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.
