At the Manhattan Minimally Invasive & Bariatric Surgery Program, our expertise extends to numerous cutting-edge procedures, ensuring a wide range of options for each patient.
The oldest and most common bariatric procedure, a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass involves partitioning the stomach and rerouting the small intestine, thereby shrinking the size of the digestive tract. This reduces the amount a patient is able to comfortably eat, stimulating lasting weight loss.
A temporary and adjustable procedure, gastric banding involves the use of a medical grade band filled with a silicone balloon. When inflated with saline, this band compresses the size of the stomach, reducing the space available. Gastric bands can be adjusted as needed through a port in the stomach.
A banding bypass is a revision procedure intended to temper weight regain after bariatric surgery. This modified process involves incorporating a gastric band after a successful bypass surgery. The gastric band helps to control appetite and stimulate further weight loss.
Similar to both a gastric bypass and a sleeve gastrectomy, a duodenal switch procedure involves removing a part of the stomach, as well as a separation of the duodenum, and a bypass of the small intestine. This process offers increased nutrient absorption while simultaneously reducing stomach size and appetite.
In a gastric sleeve procedure, a large part of the stomach is removed, leaving a small, thin sleeve roughly the size and shape of a banana. This shrinks the stomach and reduces appetite, helping patients to lose weight safely and effectively.
An emerging principle in bariatric surgery, pyloric preservation refers to the preservation of the pyloric valve during surgery. This band of smooth muscle guides the passage of food from the stomach to the duodenum, controlling the feeling of fullness after eating.
