BARIATRIC SURGERY & BODY CONTOURING 
REVISION BARIATRIC SURGERY

Revision cases are generally more complex than the initial operation. Understandably, many surgeons shy away from performing these surgeries. Dr. Mehta has modified some of older revision surgery techniques to create options that are less invasive, less complex, and safer. If the stomach is stretched out, it can be made considerably smaller by folding it inwards and suturing it, instead of cutting and re-stapling. If you had inadequate weight loss, or have regained some of the weight, and are in need of a revision surgery, please contact us for a FREE in person office consultation, or phone consultation w/ Dr. Mehta.

WHY CHOOSE DR. MEHTA FOR REVISION SURGERY

The decision to have Revision Surgery is not made easily. You should know that Dr. Mehta is a highly experienced bariatric surgeon, with one of the most in-depth training in revision surgeries. He did his fellowship under tutelage of Bariatric Surgery pioneer Dr. Brolin, where he was trained in many type of revision operations including variations of older Gastric Bypasses, Long Limb Gastric Bypass, Duodenal Switch, Jejuno-ileal bypass, Fobi-pouch, Marginal ulcers...etc. This type of training is rarely found these days, and is key into having knowledge and in-depth experience, which cannot be easily substituted. He has been performing laparoscopic revision surgeries over his entire career and has treated many patients who traveled far distances for his expertise. 

You should also find comfort in knowing that Dr. Mehta has modified many revision operations over the years, using minimally invasive techniques, and changing the way they are being done.  He is making them simpler and safer for the patients. Many of the revisions can be done without cutting the stomach or the intestines, thereby substantially decreasing the chance of a leak, and increasing patient safety. 

Additionally, Dr. Mehta personally performs each and every surgery or procedure, in their entirety from beginning to end. Surgeries are NEVER handed off to an assistant surgeon, a junior partner, or a resident. Very often this is the case in teaching hospitals, or in groups with less experienced surgeons. Dr. Mehta also personally checks on each and every patient himself after the surgery, including on weekends. He also gives out his personal cell phone number to his patients so they have quick access to him should they have any questions or concerns. Spend some time reading his testimonials to see what his patients have to say.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING
Dr. Mehta and his staff (especially Lulu) are great!! Dr. Mehta has a great bedside manner and takes the time to talk to you and answer any and all questions that you may have. My situation was different than most. I had an old gastric banding placed in back in 1985. My surgery was performed by a surgeon who no longer practices. The banding had gone bad and eroded through my stomach causing a lot of pain. I had gone to many doctors and finally met Dr. Mehta who decided to help me by performing corrective surgery to remove the band and perform the new gastric bypass. I was back up to 225 lbs and I am now down to 140 lbs. My husband met with Dr. Mehta while he was in the hospital and liked his manners and asked me to call him. I had no problem getting an appointment and he explained everything I needed to know. I had the surgery and I am now feeling great and no longer in pain. I love Dr. Mehta and his staff. I felt I made a great choice and I am glad he took my case on and helped me out.

INSURANCE vs. SELF PAY
- Revision operations are often Covered by insurance, with the approval process being surprisingly easy.
- Self pay fee (If not using insurance): Depends on what's to be done.
- We can give you accurate cost once we contact your insurance company for details. You should know that Dr. Mehta does not balance bill patients.  Our office manager, Lulu, is extremely knowledgable & efficient in dealing with insurance companies to get your surgery approved. If you decide to self-pay, you should find it comforting that our fees are very reasonable for revision procedures, and we offer the convenience of 0% interest financing using Care Credit® or Alphaeon®.

NEXT STEP
Schedule a one to one consultation with Dr. Mehta
While internet is the easiest and fastest way to gather general information, it's no substitute for a one to one consultation with Dr. Mehta who can take everything about you into account, including: your age, sex, medical & surgical history, medical co-morbidities, overall weight loss goals, expectations from surgery....etc. Processing all this information and relying on experience of thousands of patients and up to date knowledge allows Dr. Mehta to give you sound advice of the best option for YOU, specifically. This is different than going to a pre-designed power-point seminar where everything is generalized for the audience, or browsing through the internet.
