We offer a physician-supervised weight loss program to provide you with a personalized treatment in a clinical setting.
The Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (also known as Vertical Gastrectomy) involves removing about 75% of the stomach. This results in significant appetite suppression and reduction in the food portion you take in. With gastric sleeve surgery, you can expect to lose about 50 – 60% of your excess body weight.
Gastric bypass surgery is an operation to re-route a segment of your intestine to decrease the absorption of food by about 20%. The direct connection from the stomach to the lower segment of the small intestine, made during the gastric bypass procedure, delays the mixing of ingested food and digestive enzymes. With a gastric bypass surgery, you can expect to lose about 60-70% of you excess body weight.
This surgery is only an option to those with a Body Mass Index (BMI) greater than 50. It is a combination of sleeve gastrectomy and rerouting of your intestines. The Duodenal Switch procedure is offered in few facilities around the world. With this surgery, you can expect to lose about 80 – 90% of your excess body weight.
