The Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery is very similar to the traditional RNY bypass. However, the difference is that only one connection is made to the small intestine (instead of 2). As a result, this procedure creates a narrow tube-like pouch that holds approximately 1-2 ounces.
The Gastric Sleeve is a well-known surgical method for weight loss. During this procedure, the size of the stomach is surgically decreased to about one-third of its original volume. Specifically, to achieve this reduction, surgeons remove a significant portion of the stomach along the greater curvature. As a result, this action reshapes the stomach into a tubular form, frequently compared to a “sleeve”.
In the process of a Gastric Bypass, a small pouch is segmented off from the remaining stomach tissue, ultimately creating a new stomach roughly the size of a golf ball. Then, the middle section of the small intestines is rerouted to the newly created pouch, bypassing the stomach and duodenum. As a result, patients can shed excess weight. Finally, if you’re considering a duodenal switch or gastric bypass, read our latest article comparing the two here.
Among the array of weight loss procedures, duodenal switch surgery is notably recognized as a cutting-edge method. Initially, this technique involves surgically removing a significant portion of the stomach. Subsequently, there’s an intricate rerouting of the small intestine. The primary aim of these alterations is to significantly diminish the body’s capacity to absorb both calories and essential nutrients. As a result, these work to promote weight loss.
For a large number of our clients, their initial bariatric surgery produces lasting outcomes. They also receive beneficial lifestyle changes they are seeking. However, some weight-loss revision or conversion surgeries may be required to fully meet their goals.
A gastric balloon, also known as an intragastric balloon or a stomach balloon, is an inflatable medical device that is temporarily placed into the stomach to help reduce weight. It is designed to help provide weight loss when diet and exercise have failed and surgery is not wanted or not recommended for the patient.
