I travelled from the UK to have revision surgery from a Gastric Plication to a Gastric Bypass. I had contacted several clinics and despite mentioning revision surgery on the websites, none of them seemed keen when I asked for further details.

I received a very fast response from coordinator who helped me throughout the process. The week I was due to fly to Lithuania, the UK got added to the list of countries which required visitors to undergo 14 days isolation due to COVID-19 levels. Coordinator helped to make sure that I had somewhere to isolate and that the surgery still went ahead. She filled out all of the government forms due to isolation and arranged all of the transport required.

Prof Antanas Mickevičius is a highly skilled surgeon. He explained the different options for the revision surgery beforehand and gave me a choice if he found issues from the previous operation. I was out of bed the next day and recovery so far has been swift.
