Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery (weight-loss surgery) includes several procedures performed to help obese people lose weight successfully when other methods have failed.

Manatee Surgical Alliance offers the laparoscopic gastric sleeve procedure in which 70 to 80 percent of the stomach is removed. This reduces hunger and increases satiety with smaller portions of food. Patients may expect an excess body weight loss of 70 percent. Sleeve gastrectomy’s advantage over Lap Band surgey is that there is no foreign body implanted, and unlike gastric bypass, there is less change in the absorptive capacity of nutrients. The sleeve offers dramatic improvements in health, often including diabetes and hypertension resolution.
