Patient Interview: A Lap Band Recipient in 2007 undergoes an ESG Revision

After developing high blood pressure, weight regain– she reached out to Dr. Marvin

With the minimal downtime and non-surgical nature of the ESG it is a natural choice for any bariatric revision surgery, given certain parameters, of course. After consulting with Dr. Marvin and considering all options, Rynda was ready. Watch her interview below. (Lap Band surgery was not performed by Dr. Marvin)

Why a revision may be needed

There are several reasons to need a revision as Rynda came to understand. Although not an expectation, our bodies can go thorugh changes, and other health issues can manifest unrelated to the original procedure. In her case, Rynda began to experience knee issues and high blood pressure, resulting in multiple comorbidities.
