This minimally-invasive bariatric procedure reduces the size of the stomach from its regular size to a small pouch, allowing patients to jumpstart weight loss and maintain a healthier lifestyle.
Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding (LAGB) is a type of bariatric surgery in which a surgeon creates a small pouch by placing an adjustable band around the top portion of the stomach. This allows patients to feel full after smaller meals, resulting in weight loss. Often used to treat severe obesity, the band can be adjusted by adding or removing fluid in the balloon around the pouch to accommodate each patient’s unique needs.
The mini gastric bypass procedure works by dividing the stomach by its upper and lower pouches and rerouting the small intestine, allowing the patient to experience restrictive and malabsorption weight loss. Similar to full gastric bypass surgery, a mini gastric bypass is shorter, less invasive, and requires less recovery time, rendering it the optimal choice for many patients.
Revision surgery is an option for bariatric patients who have not experienced optimal results or those who have regained a significant amount of excess body weight following a bariatric procedure.
Overstitch revision is a safe, effective procedure entails reducing the size of a patient’s enlarged stomach pouch and outlet to their original post-surgical proportions. It allows patients to recommit to health goals following significant weight after a gastric bypass procedure.
