Procedure for Weight Loss

Our medical experts only preffer surgery for weight loss in exceptional cases. Some weight loss surgery available at our practice includes gastric bypass, Sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric band, and Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch.

  • Gastric Bypass: During our gastric bypass surgery, our specialist divides a portion of your stomach away from the rest, creating a little pouch; this makes food bypass the rest of your stomach. Our expert links the small intestine to this recently created stomach; this creates a tiny stomach, compelling you to eat smaller meals.
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy: In addition, our sleeve gastrectomy removes about 80 percent of your stomach and reduces the quantity of food you can eat. This surgery also affects the creation of several hormones and can help you feel fuller quickly.
  • Adjustable Gastric Band: The adjustable gastric band surgery involves our trusted team wrapping a band around the topmost portion of your stomach, reducing the usable part of your stomach, creating similar effects to sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass.
  • Biliopancreatic Diversion: Our specialist creates a smaller stomach during the biliopancreatic diversion with a duodenal switch. We take out a part of the small intestine, decreasing the quantity of food you can absorb.
