Gastric Band Surgery
Patients who have the Adjustable Gastric band fitted are more able to achieve good weight loss results because the practitioner is able to monitor and adjust how much food the Patient consumes.
This is good for the patient as it encourages them to maintain the diets recommended by the Practitioners, and the Practitioners like it because it allows them to monitor the patients progress over time.
Gastric Bypass Surgery
This procedure is normally performed to reduce the size of the stomach by as much as 90% in an effort to radically reduce the volume of food a clinically obese person is able to consume at any one time. Gastric bypass is a very effective procedure and is done laparoscopically, where laparoscopes are used by the Surgeons to gain access through the abdominal wall through small surgical incisions. This method reduces the risk of infections and also improves recovery time for the patient.
Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Gastric Sleeve Surgery or Sleeve Gastrectomy is carried out by a qualified Bariatric surgeon who will remove approximately 60 to 80% of the patients stomach , leaving only a small tube (“sleeve”) which effectively becomes the new stomach pouch which extends from the natural stomach opening to the natural stomach outlet.
