Revisional surgery is more complex than primary surgery. The main reason is that the anatomy will have been disturbed when you had, and recovered from, your primary procedure. More specifically, adhesions (scar tissue) will have formed in the abdomen and around the stomach. The adhesions need to be dissected, which is a delicate process, in order to expose the stomach and complete the revisional surgery safely. The presence of adhesions and the increased unpredictability of what the surgeon will be presented with in the abdominal cavity mean that revision surgery is more technically challenging, and requires greater expertise to perform safely and effectively.
Due to the specialist nature of this work we focus all our revision procedures on a select group of 4 surgeons, all of whom are specialists and do high volume revision work, both privately and in their NHS practice. Read why this is important and read more about our surgeons here.
From this page we aim to provide all the information you will need to inform yourself about the revision surgery options that are available to you. Our team members are experienced and are ready to answer your questions and help you decide upon the best option for you.

Sharon is a gastric bypass patient from Manchester (November 2018). She said:
'My experience with Healthier Weight has been excellent throughout. From the Patient care Co-ordinator, Cavell, to the nursing team through to the hospital team at the wonderful Priory hospital. Mr Singhal was the ideal surgeon throughout. My procedure was complicated because I’d had invasive abdominal surgery over 30 years ago. Mine was a complicated case! Mr Singhal planned my treatment and made sure everything went well. I had mini gastric bypass surgery and I couldn’t recommend the service highly enough’
