Types of Weight Loss Surgery
Healthy weight loss starts with calories in, calories out. We offer several safe, effective procedures to safely reduce the amount of food you can comfortably eat in one sitting. Your options include :
- Adjustable gastric banding: A silicone band is placed around the top of the stomach organ.
- Vertical sleeve gastrectomy: A large portion of your stomach is removed, and the remainder is reshaped it into a small sleeve about the size of a banana.
- Gastric bypass, or Roux-en-Y: Pronounced ROO-en-why, this procedure involves creating a small stomach pouch and rerouting the digestive tract around part of the small intestine to decrease the nutrients, fat and calories your body absorbs from food.
Most bariatric surgeries can be done with laparoscopic ( minimally invasive) techniques. The surgeon will use small incisions, a fiber-optic camera, a video monitor and long-handled precision instruments to minimize scarring and reduce recovery time. Open surgery might be a better option for complex cases. The surgeon will open the abdomen with longer incisions and use traditional medical instruments to perform the procedure.
