Gastric bypass may be a good rescue option for failed gastric sleeves

Posted on 13 Oct, 2013

Gastric sleeve or sleeve gastrectomy surgery is fast becoming the most commonly done weight loss surgery procedure in Australia and the world.

Dr Ken Wong at Central Coast Surgery personally performs about 100 gastric sleeves a year.

Most patients will lose a fair bit of weight. However, there will be occasional stomach dilatation down the track. Repeat gastric sleeving or conversion to gastric bypass may well be a good solution.

In this month’s international journal of Obesity Surgery, Dr. Ken Wong publishes his experiences with gastric bypass.

To discuss whether gastric bypass may be suitable for you or if your gastric sleeve is not working, please contact Dr. Ken Wong’s office on 4323 7000.
