Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric Bypass Surgery, otherwise known as the roux-en-y gastric bypass. Gastric bypass surgery is considered the “gold standard” in bariatrics because it is one of the most well-understood weight loss surgeries today. In the United States, gastric bypass is the most performed surgery, ahead of gastric banding.

Gastric Banding Surgery

Gastric Banding, known commonly by the implant brand names Lap-Band System or REALIZE system, is a restrictive weight loss procedure popular in the United States. In Mexico however, most patients opt for a less involving surgery like gastric sleeve surgery. Gastric banding is one of the original weight loss procedures but is being eclipsed by other surgeries.

Duodenal Switch Surgery

The Duodenal Switch, otherwise known as the vertical sleeve with duodenal switch, is a bariatric surgery that uses both restrictive and malabsorptive techniques, similar to gastric bypass, to produce high expected weight loss.

Gastric Balloon Surgery

Intra-Gastric Balloon procedure is a medical weight loss procedure designed for patients to last for six months. The gastric balloon aims at morbidly obese individuals to quickly reduce 20 to 30 pounds to prepare for either gastric bypass or duodenal switch.

Gastric Balloon is a restrictive procedure, relying on an adjustable balloon installed endoscopically through a patient’s esophagus. This process takes less than an hour and is an outpatient procedure.

We are well-known for providing complicated bariatric surgery revisions. We are capable of the most common revision types including gastric banding to gastric sleeve, gastric bypass to duodenal switch, and others. Learn more or contact our staff to see if we can help.
