Bariatric Surgical Procedures

Weight-loss, or bariatric, surgery helps you lose weight and lowers your risk of medical problems associated with obesity. Bariatric surgery contributes to weight loss in two ways: RESTRICTION. Surgery is used to physically limit the amount of food the stomach can hold, which limits the number of calories you can eat. MALABSORPTION. Surgery is used to shorten or bypass part of the small intestine, which reduces the amount of calories and nutrients the body absorbs.

LAP-BAND Surgery

The Adjustable Gastric Band – often called the band – involves an inflatable band that is placed around the upper portion of the stomach, creating a small stomach pouch above the band.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

The Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy – often called the sleeve – is performed by removing approximately 80 percent of the stomach. The remaining stomach is a tubular pouch.

Duodenal Switch Surgery

Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch is a surgery that reduces the size of the stomach and the intestine, that is composed of a restrictive and a malabsorptive aspect.

Gastric Bypass Surgery

The Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass – often called Gastric Bypass – is considered the ‘gold standard’ of weight loss surgery and is the most commonly performed bariatric procedure.

Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery

Laparoscopic Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery is easier, safer and takes less time to perform than traditional laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery.

Gastric Plication Surgery

Laparoscopic Gastric Plication is a newer minimally invasive weight-loss surgery technique that reduces the size of the stomach capacity to approximately three ounces.

Laurie McClure

  • 31 years old
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy

“I had the gastric sleeve surgery and I lost 140 pounds in one year. I chose weight loss surgery because I tried everything out there—I did weight watchers, I did all the crazy fad-diets—and everything ended up just making me gain more weight. After losing that weight and after weight loss surgery I feel a lot better. I’m a lot happier in my pictures, I’m really smiling. I’m not just fake smiling because someone is taking a picture.
