I am 12 years post op gastric bypass and was thinking of getting a revision. How much does the stomaphyx procedure cost?- Kim
StomaphyX is mostly off the market as it was not that effective. It has been replaced by the Apollo endosurgical procedure. This is a way to reduce the size of the stoma or opening from the gastric pouch. There is another method called Sclerotherapy that uses an injection by scope to shrink the stoma. What revision you need depends on what is wrong. Some of these new techniques are not covered by insurance. Call me if you have any questions, or you can can call the office for appointment if you want.
