A SAFE OPTION FOR
LONG-TERM WEIGHT LOSS
What Is It?
Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through removal of a portion of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy or biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch) or by resecting and re-routing the small intestine to a small stomach pouch (gastric bypass surgery).
Normal BMI ranges from 20-25. An individual is considered morbidly obese if he or she is 100 pounds over his/her ideal body weight, has a BMI of 40 or more, or 35 or more and experiencing obesity-related health conditions, such as high blood pressure or diabetes.
Body mass index is not the only factor used to measure obesity and the risk for disease.
Through a comprehensive evaluation, our care team will help you determine if you are a candidate for bariatric surgery.
A small stomach pouch is made by dividing a small portion of the top of the stomach then, connecting it to the small intestine thereby decreasing consumption capacity. It is one of the most effective weight loss procedures.
Sleeve Gastrectomy, also called “the sleeve” is an irreversible, weight loss surgery wherein 4/5 of the stomach is removed.
The rest of the stomach stays as a banana-shaped pouch.
Adjustable Gastric Band
Lap Band is one of the least invasive bariatric surgeries.
Small incisions measuring about a centimeter are made and a band of silicone is inserted around the stomach to constrict the passage and decrease food intake.
