Bariatric surgeries are the solution for patients with BMI over 35, who have been trying to lose weight though other methods but with no success. Bariatric surgery is not only the solution for weight loss, but has many other advantages, such as improving mental health or the conditions caused by excess weight: diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, depression, sleep apnea, high cholesterol, liver and cardiovascular diseases among others.

Gastric Sleeve

Also known as Sleeve Gastrectomy, this procedure helps patients lose weight by removing a portion of their stomach, more exactly the one which is responsible for stimulating hunger. The procedure is the best option for patients with BMI over 30. With 60-85% of the stomach removed, patients will eat less and the weight loss expectations are between 60-90% in the first 1-2 years after the procedure.

Gastric Bypass

Also known as Roux-en-Y, the procedure is the most popular bariatric surgery and the only one with proven effective long term weight loss. The amount of food intake is restricted as the stomach is divided into two sections separated by staples. A small pouch is created where the food enters,  and a larger one which is closed and bypassed. The small intestine will also be divided and re-routed to the small pouch.

The procedure is an option for patients with BMI over 35, who will lose around 10-20 pounds per month in the first year after the procedure.

Adjustable Gastric Band

Also known as Lap Band, the procedure is the least invasive among all as it does not permanently alter the size of the stomach. A adjustable band will be placed around the upper part of the stomach limiting the quantity of food intake. After the surgery patients will lose between 30% and 65% of the excess weight.

Gastric Plication

Also known as Gastric Imbrication, the procedure is minimally invasive, reversible, tailored to each patient's specific needs. Using stitches, the greater curve of the stomach is folded reducing the stomach's size by almost 70% and therefore the food intake.

Duodenal Switch

The procedure is a metabolically active surgery, as it restricts both the amount of food intake and the number of calories absorbed by the body. The duodenal switch procedure leads to the greatest weight loss among all bariatric procedures, and is the most efficient in improving conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol.

Revision Bariatric Surgery

  • Adjustable gastric band revision surgery - Performed on patients who have had a previous stomach stapling, gastroplasty procedure, or Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery but have regained weight.  

  • Roux-en-Y gastric bypass revision technique – performed on patients who have not been successful in meeting their weight loss goals after stomach stapling, gastroplasty, vertical gastric banding, or laparoscopic-adjustable gastric banding.

  • Sleeve gastrectomy revision surgery - removes a larger portion of the stomach when the previous gastrectomy has failed in producing the desired result in weight loss.
