What are the benefits of the endoscopic procedure?
At times open or laparoscopic revision surgery can be very difficult and even impossible due to scarring and adhesions from the original Weight Loss Surgery procedure. During the longer abdominal revision surgery, patients are three times more likely to develop complications during this than original WLS. In comparison to abdominal revision surgery, a revision through an endoscopic procedure decreases the patient’s risks of complication as well as less pain, faster recovery, and no abdominal scarring.* Although it is common for patients to go home the same day, the Advanced Surgical Bariatrics of New Jersey physician’s will discharge patients based on their personal data.
