Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is a minimally invasive approach to weight loss surgery. This procedure is irreversible, and requires a long-term commitment to major lifestyle and diet changes.
Our surgeons first make a small stomach pouch, to which they then attach a part of the small intestines. Patients lose weight for two reasons: 1) the surgery restricts the amount of food you can eat; and 2) the body absorbs fewer calories of the food you do eat.
The majority of our gastric bypass patients experience no complications. Patients lose an average of 75% of their excess weight within two years after the gastric bypass procedure. Most patients also enjoy the disappearance of or significant improvement in their obesity-related conditions.
Laparoscopic gastric band is another minimally invasive approach to weight loss surgery. Our surgeons place the band around the stomach, which limits the amount of food you can eat.
While the band produces very good results (approximately 50% excess weight loss in our patients), the results are more gradual and less dramatic than those achieved by the gastric bypass procedure. However, the band offers several advantages. During surgery, it is the most minimally invasive technique; after surgery, it is adjustable and reversible. Because of these pros and cons, the Institute uses bands for higher-risk patients.
Sleeve gastrectomy is a relatively new restrictive bariatric surgery procedure. It can be used as a primary procedure for select patients, or it can be performed as part of a two-stage treatment on patients who have a higher body mass index. The second stage is usually gastric bypass. During sleeve gastrectomy, the surgeon creates a small, sleeve-shaped stomach that measures one to five ounces.
