Weight loss surgery
Types of weight loss surgery
Your surgeon will discuss different surgical options with you. Our practice currently offers the following weight loss surgeries:
- Gastric bypass: This procedure involves adjusting the shape of the stomach to hold less food. The surgeon may use traditional or minimally invasive techniques to remove a portion of the stomach. The remaining portion of the stomach is roughly the size and shape of a banana. Due to the reduced size of the stomach, patients are able to feel less hungry while remaining on a diet.
- Gastric sleeve: Also known as roux-en-y gastric bypass, this procedure promotes weight loss in a different way. During this procedure, the surgeon uses staples to create a smaller stomach pouch. This new stomach, which is about the size of an egg, is connected to the esophagus. The surgeon re-routes the small intestine from the excluded portion of the stomach and reconnects it to the new stomach. Weight loss occurs due to the smaller size of the stomach and due to the inability to absorb as many calories
