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.
