Weight Loss Surgery
Fobi Pouch Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
A gastric bypass can aid weight loss by restricting the amount of food the stomach can hold. It also alters the way food gets passed through the digestive system, thereby resulting in fewer calories to be absorbed.
This procedure is performed in a minimally invasive manner with the help of small incisions, smaller surgical instruments, and a laparoscope.
We offer the addition of a fobi pouch (silastic ring) as less weight regain is observed
The Gastric Sleeve is a restrictive procedure meaning that it achieves weight loss results by restricting the amount of food that your body is physically able to take in. There is no malabsorption involved with this procedure. Gastric Sleeve surgery involves permanently removing a large portion of the stomach, anywhere from 60% to 85% of the total stomach.
The portion left behind is a slim tube or “sleeve” that will serve as your new stomach. This stomach is already connected naturally to the stomach inlet and outlet which means that no rerouting of the intestines is needed.
Mini Gastric Bypass
Mini gastric bypass or sometimes called 'loop gastric bypass', 'omega loop gastric bypass' or 'one anastomosis' gastric bypass.
This operation is no longer performed. However, we do offer gastric band revisional surgery for patients.
If you have had complications with previous surgery we are also able to provide solutions which can help.
