Types of Weight-Loss Surgery
Weight loss surgery is effective and durable, working to ease your sense of hunger and, to varying degrees, reduce absorption of excess fat and unneeded calories. These changes produce not only weight loss but also resolution of many obesity related diseases. Rex Bariatric Specialists offers a wide-ranging choice of weight loss procedures to meet your individual needs:
- Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (Switch) – Sleeves the stomach (reducing 80 percent) and connects to the lower portion of small intestine to form a long intestinal bypass.
- Single Anastomosis Duodeno-ileostomy with Sleeve Gastrectomy (SADI) – Sleeves the stomach, (reducing 80 percent) and connects to the middle portion of the small intestine to form a medium bypass.
- Roux en Y gastric bypass (Bypass)– Divides your stomach into a small pouch which connects to your upper small intestine to form short bypass.
- Vertical sleeve gastrectomy (Sleeve) – Sleeves the stomach and removes about 85 percent.
Our expert surgeons have worked collaboratively to develop and standardize our nationally recognized techniques. We offer you only the most proven and effective surgery options and seek the highest quality outcomes.
Cannot say enough positive about this group. I’ve been a patient of theirs for two years now. The excellent physicians are involved and motivating before and after surgery. The dietitians are very knowledgeable and always available for my many questions. The office staff is ALWAYS friendly and efficient. I recommend them highly.
Revisional Weight-Loss Surgery
If you follow your recovery plan and make required lifestyle changes after surgery, you’ll likely experience the best possible long-term outcome. But if you still regain a lot of weight after having a bariatric procedure, ask your surgeon about revisional surgery. Together, you can explore options for follow-up treatment to help you lose more weight.
Remove a Gastric Band
Talk to us if you had Lap-Band surgery and would like to try a different bariatric surgical approach. We can remove the band and perform a minimally invasive sleeve gastrectomy (partial stomach removal) at the same time to help you lose weight more successfully.
Reduce Cost with Outpatient Bariatric Surgery
If your insurance plan doesn’t cover bariatric surgery, ask your surgeon if you qualify to receive gastric sleeve or SIPS surgery on an outpatient basis. You’ll get the same surgery, but stay in the hospital for less time—reducing the cost. Your surgical team will closely monitor your recovery beginning the next day.
