Why we focus on gastric sleeve and gastric bypass.

Although many other bariatric surgery procedures exist — such as LAP-BAND® and duodenal switch — we focus on
gastric sleeve (officially called sleeve gastrectomy) and gastric bypass. These procedures not only offer excellent outcomes, but also have low complication rates.

Gastric Sleeve

Lose 60% to 70% of your excess weight.

After removing a portion of the stomach, the remaining stomach “sleeve” restricts calorie intake but doesn’t limit nutrient absorption.

 

Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass    

Lose 70% to 80% of your excess weight.

The gold standard for bariatric surgery, gastric bypass creates a small stomach pouch to limit calorie intake and reroutes the small intestine to reduce nutrient absorption.

Note that these percentages are averages — with dedication, you can lose 100% of your excess weight!
