If exercise and diet aren’t enough for sustained weight loss, you may be eligible for bariatric surgery.
What is bariatric surgery?
Bariatric surgery involves techniques that reduce the amount of food the stomach can hold. In turn, the body absorbs fewer calories and nutrients, resulting in weight loss.
Types of Bariatric Surgery Offered
Roux en Y Gastric Bypass
Restricts food intake and decreases how food is absorbed by creating a small stomach pouch and bypassing the flow of food around the rest of the stomach to the small intestine.
Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
Decreases stomach size and movement to restrict food intake. This procedure also is called gastric sleeve, vertical gastrectomy or gastric reduction.
There are occasions when people have either had the wrong type of surgery for them or have not had optimal outcome from their surgery. We will evaluate, council and offer personalized revision procedures. These procedures include:
- Revision/removal of gastric banding
- Revision of gastric bypass
- Conversion of gastric band to bypass, or sleeve
- Sleeve to bypass.
Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding
Reduces food intake by placing a band around the top of the stomach, then tightening and loosening the stomach opening as needed.
