Weight Loss Surgery Treatments

Bariatric surgery is a proven surgical approach to change the way you eat so you'll lose weight. The type of surgery determines the nature of the weight loss.

roux en y Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass: During this procedure, a small stomach pouch is created to decrease the amount of food it can hold. Reconfiguration of the small intestine allows food to bypass a portion of the small intestine to limit the calories your body absorbs. By taking in less food and fewer calories, your body is able to lose greater amounts of weight faster than by dieting. This procedure, performed under general anesthesia, takes between two and four hours, with an expected hospital stay of two to three days
