What Is Bariatric Surgery?
Many people don’t know what their options are for losing weight. Diet and exercise is usually the first recommendation. For somebody’s types and situations, it can work. Next, there is medical weight loss using prescribed medications like Saxenda or Contrave. While effect, they are not magic and the weight won’t disappear overnight. If those methods did not work for you, Bariatric Surgery is an option.
Our very own Dr. Khan is explaining a minimally invasive technique called laparoscopy. It reduces scarring, reduces recovery times, and avoids full open abdomen surgery.
Ahad Khan talks about what Robotic-assisted surgery is and how it can benefit the patient and surgeon for better outcomes during bariatric procedures. We utilize the Da Vinci robot as a minimally invasive surgical option.
Dr. Khan explains the gastric bypass procedure and how new technologies have made it easier and safer than ever before.
Dr. Andre Nunn discusses the gastric sleeve procedure also known as sleeve gastrectomy or vertical sleeve gastrectomy VSG. It is both a restrictive and malabsorptive procedure that limits the amount of food and how much is absorbed into your digestive system.
Dr. Chris explains what endoscopic bariatrics is. This incisionless technique reduces the capacity of your digestive system leading to a safe and healthy weight loss. Endoscopy is used for many types of procedures to reduce pain and increase the speed of healing.
