Gastric Banding:

Procedure Description.

Gastric Banding is a restrictive procedure because it limits the amount of food you can eat at on time. During this procedure, the gastric band is placed around the stomach, dividing it into parts: a small upper pouch & a lower stomach. The upper pouch holds about 4 ounces (1/2 cup) of food. This helps a person feel full sooner & longer than usual.

How it works to help you lose weight

By creating a smaller stomach pouch, the gastric band limits the amount of food that can be eaten at one time, so you feel full sooner & stay full longer, as you eat less food, your body will stop storing excess calories & start using its fat supply for energy.

Gastric Bypass:

Procedure Description

Gastric Bypass is a combi-nation of restrictive and malabsorptive surgical techniques. In this procedure, a small stomach pouch is created & a section of the small intestine is directly attached to the pouch. This allows food to bypass a portion of the small intestine. By creating a smaller stomach pouch, a Gastric Bypass limits the amount of food that can be eaten at one time, so you feel full sooner & stay full longer. By bypassing a portion of the small intestine, it also causes your body to absorb fewer calories.

  • What types of Bariatric Surgery procedures have you performed?
  • Can this surgery be performed using minimally invasive techniques?
  • Can I be considered a candidate for surgery even though I have one or more associated health conditions related to my obesity?
  • Which procedure is best for me? Why? What are the risks involved?
  • What is the duration of the surgery?
  • What is the anticipated length of my hospital stay?
  • How will my eating habits change?
  • Can you give me an idea of the surgery cost?
  • What is the typical excess weight loss & improvement of associated health conditions for your other patients?
  • Do you have patients who are willing to share their experiences, both positive & negative?
  • What information can you give me to help family & friends better understand this surgery?

How to evaluate surgical options

  • As you consider weight loss treatment with Bariatric Surgery, it's important to assess your options using these critical factors: safety, effectiveness and support. The safety of a procedure can be indicated by complication rates, mortality rates, or the need for secondary procedures to resolve problems.
  • The effectiveness of a weight loss procedure can be measured in weight loss at 1 years and weight loss at 3 years or more. Improvements in obesity related health conditions after surgery, such as type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure & obstructive sleep apnea, are also good indicators of effectiveness.
  • Experts agree that ongoing support following any procedure is essential to help patients modify behaviors, lose weight & keep the weight off. The surgeon & staff at the surgeon's office play a vital role in providing support before & after surgery.
