We offer a range of weight loss surgeries that are tailored to meet individual weight loss needs and goals, including:
Gastric sleeve surgery involves reducing the stomach's size and shape into a sleeve-like structure, limiting food intake and promoting weight loss.
This procedure creates a small pouch from the stomach, which is then directly connected to the small intestine. It restricts food intake and reduces calorie absorption.
A modified version of gastric bypass, the mini gastric bypass involves creating a small gastric pouch and rerouting a section of the small intestine. It promotes weight loss through both restriction and malabsorption.
This surgery combines a sleeve gastrectomy with an intestinal bypass, resulting in reduced bowel movement frequency and fewer side effects while achieving weight loss.
This procedure involves a sleeve gastrectomy and an intestinal bypass, resulting in two intestinal limbs. It is particularly effective for individuals with Type 2 diabetes, but limits nutrient absorption in the lower intestines.
Bariatric surgery is typically recommended for individuals who have been diagnosed with severe obesity and have been unable to achieve significant weight loss through non-surgical methods such as diet and exercise. Candidates for bariatric surgery often have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher, or a BMI of 35-39.9 along with obesity-related health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, or sleep apnea.
Bariatric surgery is not a cosmetic procedure or a quick fix for weight loss. It is a medical intervention that aims to improve overall health and quality of life for individuals who are severely obese and facing associated health risks. It is important to undergo a thorough evaluation and consultation with a bariatric surgeon to determine if bariatric surgery is appropriate and beneficial for each individual case.
