Bariatric Procedures Our Team Offers
The duodenal switch reduces the stomach and bypasses much of the small intestine. This procedure works mainly by reducing the absorption of fats and proteins.
The gastric bypass reduces the size of the stomach and reroutes food into the first part of the small intestine. It helps increase energy expenditure and changes in digestive hormones.
Gastric sleeve doesn’t involve bypassing the small intestine and has minimal complications. It works best for people with lower BMIs who can supplement the procedure with increased physical activity.
The gastric balloon is an FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment. While it’s a temporary solution, limiting the amount of food you can eat helps you maintain a healthy weight over time.
A Lap-Band® is an adjustable gastric band placed around the stomach’s upper part. It helps patients lose weight by reducing their stomach size, restricting how much they can eat.
