A sleeve gastrectomy is an effective, safe weight loss operation that removes the part of the stomach where a specific hormone is produced so that patients do not feel hungry all the time. Performed via five tiny incisions, a sleeve gastrectomy allows permanent reduction in hunger and weight, without implants, and no long-term nutritional problems.
Gastric bypass surgery helps you lose weight by changing how your stomach and small intestine handle the food you eat. The stomach is divided into a small upper pouch and a much larger lower "remnant" pouch and the small intestine is rearranged to connect to both. When combined with a comprehensive treatment plan, gastric bypass can result in long-term weight loss and help increase the quality of your health.
The Results are Impressive
Studies have shown that weight loss can extend both the length and quality of your life. Weight loss is not the only benefit of bariatric surgery. It can also resolve sleep apnea, hypertension, Type II diabetes, menstrual dysfunction and venous stasis ulcers. Contact one of our fellowship trained surgeons for more information.
