Gastric Sleeve Surgery
One of the most effective options in bariatric surgery is gastric sleeve surgery. This procedure reduces the size of the stomach permanently and helps reset the metabolism. Also called laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, this bariatric procedure removes up to 80% of the stomach, the round portion that also produces the majority of the “hunger hormone,” ghrelin. The smaller stomach and reduced ghrelin give patients the tools to eat less and lose weight quickly after their procedure.
Gastric Bypass Surgery
Gastric bypass bariatric surgery is a commonly performed weight loss procedure. This intensive surgery is usually indicated for individuals with a high BMI and/or obesity-related health conditions that need to lose weight rapidly. The surgery converts the stomach into a small pouch which restricts how much food can be consumed at one time, usually about 3-4 ounces. There are also changes to the digestive system, removing and rerouting the intestinal pathways. These changes decrease how much is absorbed from any food eaten, decreasing the total calories for accelerated weight loss.
Dr. David Davtyan does not recommend or perform gastric bypass surgery. Our centers offer effective bariatric surgery and weight loss procedure options that are minimally invasive and safer for our patients.
With sleeve gastrectomy, gastric plication, gastric balloon procedures and Lap-Band surgery, these procedures are minimally invasive without the risk of malabsorption concerns like gastric bypass. The bariatric surgeries can be performed with laparoscopic techniques, only requiring tiny incisions to make the changes to the stomach for accelerated weight loss. The gastric balloon options do not require surgery for a safe and non-invasive tool for weight loss.
