Bariatric surgery is one of the most effective long-term weight loss solutions for those suffering from excess weight and obesity. It is however possible to start regaining some weight several years after a successful weight loss surgery procedure. Remember that life goes on after bariatric surgery and that means that oftentimes, strict diet and exercise regimens fall by the wayside.

As part of his dedication to long-term weight loss, Dr. Duncan not only performs the most common revisional bariatric procedures, but has also developed a proprietary revisional bariatric surgery, addressing excess weight regain issues.
