Bariatric Procedures

LAP-BAND

The LAP-BAND® System is a weight loss surgical procedure in which an inflatable band is placed around the upper part of your stomach. This limits your stomach’s capacity and creates a feeling of fullness. As a result, you eat less food and lose weight.

Sleeve Gastrectomy (Gastric Sleeve)

Sleeve gastrectomy is a restrictive bariatric surgery. During this procedure, the surgeon creates a small, sleeve-shaped stomach. It is larger than the stomach pouch created during Roux-en-Y bypass and is about the size of a banana.

Sleeve gastrectomy is typically considered as a treatment option for bariatric surgery patients with a BMI of 60 or higher. It is often performed as the first procedure in a two-part treatment. The second part of the treatment can be gastric bypass.
