Surgical Weight Loss Options:
Sleeve Gastrectomy: The "Sleeve" is a restrictive procedure in which the surgeon creates a long tubular or sleeve-shaped stomach pouch. A large portion (about 70-80%) of the stomach is completely removed at the time of surgery. This procedure does not involve any re-routing of the intestinal tract and it is not reversible.
Patients are able to lose weight with this procedure because of the reduced stomach size, which allows for better portion control. In addition, the portion of the stomach that is removed is thought to be responsible for secreting a hormone called Ghrelin which controls appetite and hunger. By removing this portion of the stomach, the appetite hormone is reduced allowing patients to experience less hunger throughout the day.
Gastric Bypass: The Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass is a surgical procedure designed to provide a lifelong tool for patients who struggle with obesity. In this procedure a small upper pouch is created by dividing and stapling the stomach into two portions. The lower portion of the stomach no longer serves as a reservoir for food, but still functions to produce hormones, enzymes and acid. An opening is created in the upper pouch and a Y-shaped section of the small intestine is connected to the new stomach pouch, bypassing the first part of the small intestine.
This procedure reduces the amount of food the stomach can hold, allowing for smaller portion sizes. It also shortens the digestive tract to limit the amount of calories that can be absorbed. Patients typically have good appetite control after this procedure.
