Gastric Sleeve

  • Sleeve Gastrectomy, or Gastric Sleeve, is a resection of approximately 75 percent of the stomach causing a decrease in hunger hormones and in the capacity of the stomach, resulting in weight loss. Gastric Sleeve limits the amount of food you can eat at one time by permanently reducing the size of your stomach. As a result, you will feel full with less food and stay satisfied longer.
  • In an analysis of clinical studies involving Gastric Sleeve, patients reported that they achieved an average of 55 percent excess weight loss.
  • Another clinical study of the Gastric Sleeve procedure reported significant improvements in obesity-related health conditions including Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and obstructive sleep apnea.

Lap Band

  • The Lap-Band ® Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band is the only adjustable and reversible weight loss procedure offered in the United States that is approved by the FDA.
  • The Lap-Band ® is a small, inflatable belt placed around the upper portion of the patient’s stomach that functions to restrict the amount of food consumed, slowing the emptying of food from the stomach, and providing a constant sensation of being full.
