Weight Loss Surgery
The Gastric Bypass is considered by the American Society of Bariatric Surgeons and the National Institutes of Health to be the gold standard of weight loss surgery, and the single most successful procedure for excess weight loss and long-term weight control. The surgery has been performed by laparoscopic method since 1997, which results in smaller incisions, less pain and scarring, reduced blood loss, shorter hospital stay, and reduced risk of internal organ damage and infection when compared to the traditional open incision technique.
Gastric Band surgery is an adjustable surgical treatment for morbid obesity. It induces weight loss by reducing the capacity of the stomach, which restricts the amount of food that can be consumed and increases the time it takes for food to be digested.
The sleeve gastrectomy is a procedure that induces weight loss by restricting food intake. The procedure removes up to 80% of the stomach laparoscopically so that the stomach takes the shape of a tube or "sleeve". The Gastric Sleeve procedure is a relatively new approach to bariatric surgery and is usually performed on severely obese or high risk patients with the intention of performing another surgery such as the gastric by-pass at a later time. This combined approach has dramatically decreased the risk of weight loss surgery for certain types of weight loss surgery patients, even when the risk of the two surgeries is added.
The intragastric balloon is designed to provide short-term weight loss therapy. The silicone balloon is placed endoscopically and filled with liquid so it partially fills the stomach and creates a feeling of fullness. The maximum time a balloon can be left in place is 6 months, after which it must be removed.
