YOU HAVE CHOICES IN WEIGHT-LOSS SURGERY

Laparoscopic Roux en Y
The most time proven weightloss surgery. A small stomach pouch is created and attached directly to the proximal small bowel. Food intake is decreased due to the small stomach. Some hormonal changes occur when the proximal small bowel is bypassed. The majority of the patients lose their appetite. The surgery discourages the patients from eating large amounts of carbohydrates since they can develop uncomfortable symptoms of dumping syndrome.
Laparoscopic Adjustable Banding
A surgical procedure wherein a band is placed around the upper stomach. The band is tightened to restrict the passage of food from the upper stomach to the lower stomach. A port is placed under the skin. Saline is injected into the port that is connected to the band. This will make the band thicker thus making the food stay longer at the upper part of the stomach.

Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve
A surgical procedure that removes 70% to 80% of the stomach. This will restrict the amount of food a patient can eat during meals. There is also a decrease in the amount of hormone that is secreted by the stomach that makes us hungry.

Conversion Surgery
There are some cases when the Lap Adjustable Banding surgery does not result in the desired weight loss and has to be converted to Lap Roux en Y Gastric Bypass or Lap Gastric Sleeve. This is done by removing the band and performing the desired weight loss surgery. This surgery is more complex because of the presence of scar tissue which can weaken the stomach wall. There is a slight increase in the complication rate with conversion surgery.

Revision Surgery
A procedure done to revise the surgery to either help in losing more weight or to correct any problem pertaining to the weight loss surgery. Conversion of gastric sleeve to gastric bypass for failure to lose adequate weight.
