Weight Loss Surgery
Millions of Americans feel trapped by their weight and are looking for a way to take control of their lives. Weight loss (Bariatric) surgery is one option for patients who are clinically overweight and have a high risk of heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, depression, sleep apnea, reflux and other associated conditions. Are you a candidate?
Our bariatric care team will work with you and your doctor to determine the best option for your health needs. There are several procedure options:
Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass is the most commonly used gastric bypass surgery. A small part of the stomach is sectioned off, creating a small pouch for restricted food intake. This procedure bypasses four feet of intestine that can no longer be utilized to absorb nutrients.
Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy removes about 85% of the stomach, leaving a much smaller stomach tube or "sleeve." This surgery involves a shorter time under general anesthesia. It does not affect absorption of nutrients, because the intestines are not cut.
