The Gastric Bypass is one of the most practiced and studied weight loss procedures. First performed in 1967 as an open incisional surgery can now be done laparoscopically, proving to be much safer while producing the same results with fewer complications. Most patients need only a one night stay in the hospital and can begin normal routine in 2-3 weeks.
The Sleeve Gastrectomy, or Gastric Sleeve surgery, is a restrictive procedure performed on the stomach. The Gastric Sleeve does not involve any surgery on the intestine. Sleeve Gastrectomy has also been called Partial Gastrectomy and Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy. This weight loss procedure consists of making the stomach into a long tube, or “sleeve”, by removing two-thirds of the stomach which supplies for quicker and a more prolonged sense of fullness and decreased appetite.
Adjustable gastric banding, occasionally described as the Lap-Band® system, is a minimally invasive weight management surgical procedure. It is commonly an outpatient treatment, with a recovery time of about one week. The flexible band is positioned around the top section of the stomach restricting the amount of food that will travel through it, consequently assisting the individual in attaining weight loss. The Lap-Band ® treatment does not require any sort of re-routing or stapling.
Typically, gastric bypass patients will initially have rapid weight loss in the first 6-12 months. The patient’s weight loss will normally level out during the next 18-24 months. Some patients may start regaining weight. This weight gain is typical of the opening of the stomach to the intestines enlarging or stretching of the stomach pouch.
The Duodenal Switch is a sleeve of the stomach combined with a bypass of the intestines. The procedure is performed laparoscopically for minimal recovery and reduces the amount of food you eat while allowing you to make better use of it.It works differently than other mainstream weight loss operations in that it blocks 80% of fat-calorie absorption that leads to lasting weight loss for so many.
Orbera Gastric Balloon
The Orbera Gastric Balloon is the FIRST and ONLY swallowable, FDA-approved balloon system for weight loss. This non-surgical procedure consists of three balloons, placed over a period of three months. The balloons take up space in the stomach, making weight loss easier. The treatment, including the Gastric Balloon System combined with medically supervised nutrition and exercise programs continues for six months.
For the a large number of our patients their initial bariatric surgery produces the lasting outcomes and beneficial lifestyle changes they are seeking, but for some weight-loss revision or conversion surgeries may be required to fully meet their goals. Whether you have the Lap Band, Gastric Bypass, Gastric Sleeve or a Vertically Banded Gastroplast, your team of specialized doctors can help identify the reason for complications and determine which procedure are right for you.
