Bariatric Surgery Overview
Obesity is a struggle many are dealing with on a day to day basis that can be overwhelming at times. There are many people that despite rigorous dieting and exercise are unable to lose weight and keep it off for an extended period of time. Many end up developing life threatening diseases such as high blood pressure, sleep apnea, type 2 diabetes, and other serious health problems. For people that deal with obesity or other serious health problems related to obesity, weight loss surgery can lift the boulder off ones back offering real health benefits.
There are three procedures that are most commonly done as a weight loss surgery procedure. Each have their own benefits and are not to be confused with one another. Bariatric Surgery with Dr. Jaso may be something to consider for patients living in or around Bexar county, or within our satellite office in Beeville. We have over 30 years in clinical experience allowing for the piece of mind. Our Standard of Care follows a program that maintains those practices.
Below are some methods to help you lose weight...please contact us here for a private consultation.
Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass is the most commonly performed bariatric procedure. It is a combination procedure (both restrictive and malabsorptive). The stomach is reduced in size, and parts of the small intestine, where most of the calories are absorbed, are re-routed.
Sleeve Gastrectomy is a type of restrictive weight loss operation. It reduces the amount of food you can eat by reducing the size of the stomach. A thin vertical sleeve, or narrow section of the stomach, is created by using a stapling device, removing approximately 80% of the total volume of the stomach.
Adjustable Gastric Banding
Adjustable Gastric Banding surgery is one of the most popular (it was one of the first procedures used) medical weight loss procedures available. The surgery is performed by placing a band around the uppermost part of the stomach, thereby limiting the amount of food one can eat at a time.
Weight Loss Revision
A revision operation is used to correct prior weight loss surgery that has failed. If you have unresolved complications or if you have not achieved your desired weight loss, a revision operation might be right for you.
Robotically-Assisted Gastric Sleeve
The Robotically-Assisted Gastric Sleeve provides your surgeon numerous technical advantages that include improved ergonomics, better visualization, and more advanced instrumentation.
