Gastric sleeve surgery, also known as Gastric Sleeve Resection or Sleeve Gastrectomy, is one of the restrictive procedures our North Texas team provides. The procedure uses stomach stapling to create a gastric “sleeve.” The stomach is stapled vertically into two sections: one section on the left (the “sleeve”) and another on the right. The stomach’s natural connection to the small intestine is at the bottom of the sleeve; in gastric sleeve surgery, this connection is left intact. Meanwhile, the right-hand portion of the stomach is removed. The procedure therefore reduces the stomach’s capacity while leaving the intestines intact.
Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass is a treatment option for patients struggling with morbid obesity. The procedure facilitates weight loss in two ways: it decreases the amount of food the stomach can hold, and it inhibits caloric absorption by bypassing part of the small intestine. This dual approach makes gastric bypass a highly effective method for helping patients achieve lasting weight loss.
A revisional bariatric surgery is performed to repair, restore, or improve the effectiveness of a previous bariatric procedure. The revised sleeve gastrectomy (re-sleeve) is a procedure that reduces the size of a dilated or surgically large sleeve. To be considered for a revision, a patient’s sleeve gastrectomy operative report and an upper gastrointestinal series (UGI or x-ray of the sleeve) will be required. Expected operating room time is less than with the original procedure and original laparoscopic incision sites will be reused if possible.Only your surgeon can help you decide what type of revision is best for you.
This is an endoscopic procedure performed by certified bariatric surgeons. The doctor easily inserts a flexible tube through your mouth and down your esophagus to create a direct pathway to the stomach. The deflated gastric balloon is then inserted through the tube and into your stomach. Once in place, the doctor inflates the balloon with a sterile saline solution, injecting that solution into the balloon through a small filling tube. Once the balloon is filled, the doctor gently removes the flexible tube by simply pulling it out. The filled balloon remains in your stomach. This out-patient, non-invasive procedure typically takes less than 45 minutes. Afterward, you will be monitored for initial reactions to the device. Patients are typically discharged within two hours of receiving the gastric balloon procedure.
