14 month's after Gastric Sleeve Surgery

  • Lap Band: Is a restrictive surgical procedure. During this procedure, two medical devices are implanted in the patient: a silicone band and an injection port. The silicone band is placed around the upper part of the stomach and molds the stomach into two connected chambers. The injection port is attached to the abdominal wall, underneath the skin. The port is connected to the band with soft, thin tubing.
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy: Is a surgical weight-loss procedure in which the stomach is reduced to about 15% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach, following the major curve. The open edges are then attached together (often with surgical staples) to form a sleeve or tube with a banana shape. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach. The procedure is performed laparoscopically and is not reversible.
  • Gastric Bypass: Bariatric surgery is a tool to help morbidly obese individuals lose most, if not all, of their excess weight. During a gastric bypass procedure, the size of the stomach is significantly reduced, limiting the volume of food a patient can consume, and the digestive tract is altered, decreasing the amount of calories and nutrients the body absorbs. When coupled with critical lifestyle changes, gastric bypass surgery can result in extreme weight loss within the first year after surgery. Patients typically lost 61.6 percent of their excess weight.
  • Mini-Gastric Bypass: A mini gastric bypass is a less invasive alternative to standard gastric bypass; but produces similar results. This procedure is performed laparoscopically, meaning the surgeon works through several small incisions and uses a tiny camera (called a laparoscope) and a television screen to guide special instruments through the incisions.
  • Gastric Plication: The procedure itself is performed in less time than traditional gastric bypass surgery, typically taking no more than an hour. Since the surgeon does not conduct mini gastric bypass surgery through one large incision, there is a lower risk of post-surgery complications.

Besides weight loss, all added pathologies derived from obesity, such as Gastroesophageal Reflux, Sleep Apnea, Hypertension, Dyslipidemia, Fatty Liver, Hyperinsulinemia (an abnormally high level of insulin in the bloodstream), Diabetes and Osteoarticular Problems are corrected.

In the majority of such pathologies it is possible to interrupt Pharmacologic Treatments for the control of these illnesses.
