Gastric Bypass JJ Revision

What Is Gastric Bypass Jejunojejunal (JJ) Revision?
A gastric bypass JJ revision can be used to lengthen the “Y” limbs that extend from the stomach to increase weight loss. This procedure can be performed with minimally-invasive laparoscopic surgery, reducing recovery and downtime. Lengthening the limbs can help with weight loss failure. In rare cases, complications can occur with the JJ after gastric bypass and require revision to reduce risks of health problems.
If you have undergone gastric bypass surgery and stopped losing weight or gained back some weight, bariatric revision surgery may be the right option. There are multiple surgical procedures that could help you continue on your weight loss journey.
