Our Signature Care Program for Bariatrics offers three minimally invasive bariatric surgical options for patients who want to follow the surgical path for weight loss. They are the laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, laparoscopic gastric banding and laparoscopic gastric bypass.
- Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
This procedure limits the amount of food you can eat by creating a thin, vertical sleeve of stomach after removing about 75 percent of the stomach so that you feel fuller sooner.
- Laparoscopic Gastric Banding
This procedure uses an adjustable band to reduce the stomach’s capacity and restrict the amount of food you consume. It is reversible and helps to make you feel fuller faster and longer.
- Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass
This procedure involves taking a small portion of the stomach, stapling it together and forming a small pouch approximately the size of an egg to limit food intake. It also bypasses part of the intestines to reduce caloric absorption.
