This video presents the case of a morbidly obese female patient with a past surgical history of a gastric banding in 2006 and sleeve gastrectomy in 2009. Once again, after completing the sleeve dissection and evaluating the case, the laparoscopic gastric bypass turns out to be the strategy of choice as a redo surgery. Dr. Higa shows his dexterity and command of all technical steps while performing a handsewn single layer interrupted gastrojejunal anastomosis.
