Obesity is one of the most prevalent causes of multiple diseases and conditions that afflict people in the United States today.

This pouch can only hold 1 ounce of food, though it may stretch in time to allow a person to eat about a cup of food at a time.  This type of procedure is considered the most drastic, although it contains the highest success rate with patients losing between 60 and 70% of excess body weight within a year.

Treatments

We are fully equipped to perform the following,

Gastric Bypass in Y DE ROUX:
It is considered to be at present the chosen surgery to achieve the reduction of weight.

This surgery consists of the creation of a smaller stomach and the accomplishment of a bridge (bypass) in the first portion of the small intestine (Duodenum – Yeyuno), connecting the “new” stomach with the small intestine postrerior to the bypass. The combination of these two mechanisms (restriction and evil absorption) achieves a suitable and progressive decrease of weight. The loss of the overweight is of approximately 80% in 3 years.

The gastric bypass is completely performed by means of laparoscopic technique, existing some cases in which it has to be turned into the conventional surgery, for opened route. It is necessary to clarify that the used surgical technique is the same for any two routes.

Adjustable Gastric Band:
This technique consists of the placement of a device (band) on the top part of the stomach immediately below the esophagogastric junction, joined across a connector  pipe to a reservoir that is located under the skin, by the means of which it is possible to fit or discharge the band.

The weight decrease is achieved across the restriction in the ingestion of show restraint, because the “new” stomach that stays overhead of the band happens to have a capacityfrom 30 to 55 cc. The loss of the overweight is of approximately 65% in 3 years. This technique can also be performed by laparoscopic method, being of minor complexity that the gastric bypass.

Gastrectomy in Sleeve:
The Gastrectomy in Sleeve is a restrictive procedure that consists of the reduction of the gastric capacity by the vertical section of the stomach up to turning it practically into a pipe of scanty diameter. The stomach that stays malfunctioning is withdrawn from the abdomen.

This surgery is in use as the first in patients of high risk which after the decrease of initial weight was similar to the bypass so the second part was not needed.

Since this technique has only a few years of appearance, a long-term follow-up is necessary to know the definitive results.
