Gastric Sleeve (laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy): Gastric sleeve surgery is a restrictive type of procedure that permanently reduces the size of the stomach, thereby limiting food intake as well as the sensation of hunger. The smaller stomach size restricts the amount of food that can be eaten, so patients lose weight by eating fewer calories. This procedure also impacts the production of ghrelin.
Gastric Bypass (laparoscopic Roux-en Y): This is the most common type of bariatric surgery. During this type of precedure, part of the stomach is separated from the rest of the stomach and closed off with staples to create a smaller pouch, resulting in less calorie absorption. Patients also have a greater sense of satisfaction with less food. The surgery results in less production of ghrelin, a hormone that may be partly responsible for making you feel hungry.
Gastric Band Repairs or Removal: Our services do not currently include new gastric band surgeries, but we do repaire or remove previous lap band procedures.
