Adjustable Gastric Banding

Gastric banding is an adjustable gastric band that alters the anatomy of the stomach to help you reduce your food intake.

It is performed laparoscopically, meaning that the surgeon makes small incisions as opposed to one large incision.


Sleeve Gastrectomy?

Sleeve gastrectomy, or vertical sleeve gastrectomy, is one of the relatively newer types of weight loss surgery.

This surgery can also be referred to medically as gastric sleeve resection, gastric sleeve surgery or tube gastrectomy.


Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass (Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass) is regarded internationally as the “gold standard” of weight loss surgery designed to reduce your food intake if you have tried and failed to lose weight through diet and exercise. Follow up to 15 years after surgery has shown patients maintain weight loss after gastric bypass surgery.
