LAPAROSCOPIC GASTRIC BAND
The gastric band is a device that is placed on the upper portion of the stomach. The gastric band procedure is done laparoscopically with minimal incisions.
GASTRIC PLICATION SURGERY
Gastric plication surgery reduces the size of the stomach approximately 70% and limits the food intake. This procedure don't requiere the removal of the stomach.
Sleeve gastrectomy surgery (gastric sleeve) is a restrictive procedure that requieres removal of 85% of your stomach.
SLEEVE GASTRECTOMY IN PATIENTS WITH CIRRHOSIS
There is evidence that bariatric surgery can be performed safely in select patients with cirrhosis. The benefits derived from weight loss and from the metabolic changes. 90% improved liver steatosis, 37% resolution of inflammation of the liver, 20% resolution of hepatic fibrosis.
Minigastric bypass surgery combines gastric reduction and intestinal malabsorption but being less invasive than the traditional gastric bypass procedure.
ROUX-en-Y GASTRIC BYPASS
Roux-en-Y gastric bypass combines gastric reduction and intestinal malabsorption to achieve weight loss.
BILIOPANCREATIC DIVERSION WITH DUODENAL SWITCH
Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch requires removal of half of your stomach and bypass of more than 50% of your small intestine. This surgery is a modification of the conventional Biliopancreatic diversion, but with fewer side effects.
BARIATRIC REVISION SURGERY
Maybe you will be interest in a bariatric revision surgery if you are failing to lose as much weight as you need to, or maybe gaining weight back again. You may also need a revision if you are experiencing complication of the primary operation such as chronic diarrhea, un expected abdominal pain, ulcers and malabsorption.
This kind of surgery are complex and highly individualized, that's why not every bariatric surgeon makes them. The risk are much greater than primary operation, but the benefits could be much greater as well.
