Gastric Bypass & Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Lafourche Parrish Weight Loss Surgery
For people suffering from obesity and related health conditions, gastric
bypass or gastric sleeve surgery is a viable tool for weight loss. For
best results, patients need to actively participate in a multi-disciplinary
weight-loss program which includes nutritional, emotional, and exercise
counseling. Our well-trained team of weight management doctors are committed
to providing the highest level of patient care every step of the way.
GASTRIC SLEEVE: A portion of the stomach is removed laparoscopically resulting in a smaller
"sleeve" or tube shaped stomach. The smaller stomach restricts
the amount of food eaten, promotes fullness and aids in weight loss.
GASTRIC BYPASS: A portion of the upper stomach is separated from the rest of the stomach
and rerouted to the small intestines. This results in food bypassing most
of the stomach restricting food portions, and the rerouted small intestine
reduces the absorption of food, both aiding in weight loss.
