Gastric surgery is a method used in the treatment of obesity and connected diseases. The surgery consists of splitting the stomach into two pouches and rerouting the small intestine in such a way that it connects to both pouches. This leads to a smaller volume of the functional stomach and thusly to a much smaller quantity of food being consumed. A gastric surgery revision is the procedure through which a patient is switched from one form of weight loss (either lap band or gastric bypass) to another.
A surgeon performing a gastric surgery revision must be skilled in several other fields besides general surgery. Some of these fields are: cosmetic and/or plastic surgery specialization, microsurgery and vascular surgery. Also, experience and a steady hand play a crucial role in choosing the right surgeon for the job.

Going to work was hard, waking up was hard, playing with our daughter was hard. We felt we were prisoners in our own bodies.
And I am!!! Actually I'm better! I have lost 10 dress sizes and about 60 pounds! I am smaller than I was at my senior prom! I feel great! I look great! I have more energy, I am able to exercise and have more endurance. I eat better in front of my son and am able to teach him better habits by example. I couldn’t ask for more.
I would like to thank Dr. Jorge Maytorena and his staff for the courtesy and professional manner in which they handled my recent medical procedure.
Dr. Maytorena I am doing great
You did a great job.
Dr. Maytorena saved my life! And not just by providing me the opportunity to loose weight and change my life. My husband and I had been fighting weight loss, diets, and exercise for several years. We have a son with a metabolic disorder and eating right and staying fit needs to be a big part of his life. We decided to take control and have the gastric sleeve surgery
