We provide several types of minimally invasive weight loss surgery. Call (855) 496-4847 to book a consult and learn which one is right for you!
Also known as vertical sleeve gastrectomy, a gastric sleeve procedure alters the shape of the stomach, reducing its size by about 85%, yet retaining its normal function. Patients who receive a sleeve procedure can expect to lose about half their excess weight over 2-3 years.
A gastric bypass involves reattaching part of the stomach to the intestine, creating a different food pathway or “bypass.” Patients who embrace the required lifestyle changes can expect to lose 80% of excess weight fairly quickly.
The “lap band” is an adjustable silicone band surgically placed around the top of the stomach to limit food intake and make you feel full sooner. The least invasive bariatric procedure, some people find it less effective for weight loss.
For those who are mildly to moderately overweight with no weight-related medical conditions, a single or dual lumen balloon is placed inside the stomach and then inflated with air. The balloon creates a smaller space for food and digestion.
