Mitchell Roslin, MD, Brian Mitzman, MD

North Shore LIJ/Lenox Hill Hospital

We present a case of an African American female who underwent a laparoscopic roux en y gastric bypass nine years previously. She initially went from a weight of 380 pounds down to approximately 200 pounds. She presented to us after regaining a large portion of her weight, now residing at 295 pounds with a BMI of 51. After failing non-operative management, she underwent a laparoscopic conversion to loop duodenal switch. After tolerating the procedure without complication, she has since lost 130 pounds, and is in excellent health.
