Obesity is associated with high cholesterol, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and altered immune health. The mainstay of therapy is weight loss!
On average, patients lose 70-90 percent of excess weight within a year after a gastric bypass, and 50-70 percent of excess weight after a sleeve gastrectomy.

A life-changing technique
Bariatric (weight loss) surgery is a life-changing technique by which individuals can enjoy a higher quality of life. Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach pouch so you will feel full after small meals and will not want to eat too many calories for your body to handle.
This is the most common and successful combined procedure for weight loss surgery. In this procedure, the surgeon creates a small stomach pouch to restrict food intake.
Then a Y-shaped section of the small intestine is attached to the pouch to allow food to bypass the lower stomach, the duodenum (the first segment of the small intestine), and the first portion of the jejunum (the second segment of the small intestine).
The gastric sleeve procedure involves reducing the size of your stomach.
During the operation up to ¾ of the stomach is removed by dividing it, with the new stomach taking the shape of a narrow tube or sleeve.
This effectively restricts the stomach capacity without affecting its function, so that the amount of food that can be eaten at one time is restricted.
A band is placed around the upper part of the stomach to create a small pouch to hold food.
The band limits the amount of food that the person eats by giving a feeling of fullness after eating small portions of food.
Our Bariatric Program is designed to guide patients through the entire journey, from determining the best procedure for each patient to post-surgery care and counseling.
