GASTRIC SLEEVE

 

Gastric Sleeve Surgery (Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy) has become the most popular option in the bariatric surgeon community due to its high levels of long term success and its quick post-surgical recovery.

 

Gastric Sleeve is a surgical procedure performed laparoscopically in which the size of the stomach is reduced by up to 80%. The success of this surgery is not only tied to its restrictive nature but also because of the decrease of Ghrelin, the hormone that regulates appetite.

GASTRIC BYPASS
(Roux-en-Y)

 

Gastric Bypass surgery makes the stomach much smaller. The new stomach (pouch) has a capacity of about two ounces.

 

This surgery also allows food to bypass part of the small intestine. Want to know more about this surgery? Contact us!

MINI GASTRIC BYPASS

 

Mini Gastric Bypass is a combined surgical procedure as it combines two mechanisms: Restriction (by creating a small and thinner stomach) and malabsorbtion (by creating a “bridge) between the stomach and the intestine).

How does it work?

 

By creating a small and thin stomach (approximately 100 ml) and since there is a feeling of fullness, the patient only consumes a small amount of food. Thanks to the “bridge” food is not absorbed completely resulting in weight loss. Want to know more about this surgery? Contact us!
