Obesity is very common in the western world. It is a chronic disease with multiple and complex causes, not just a problem of overeating. The control of obesity is a lifelong endeavor.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), two-thirds of adults in the US are overweight and half of those who are overweight are obese. An estimated 19 million Americans are morbidly obese.

SLEEVE GASTRECTOMY

The sleeve gastrectomy is a gastric restrictive procedure that reduces the size of the stomach using a surgical operation. The sleeve gastrectomy allows a patient to feel full after eating only a small amount of food. 
  • Reduces volume of the stomach by 90% 
  • ​Procedure generally takes less than an hour
  • ​Virtually scarless—single entry point through the belly button

WEIGHT LOSS WITH THE SLEEVE GASTRECTOMY

The amount of weight patients can lose with the sleeve gastrectomy is dependent upon how carefully they follow the programs nutritional and exercise recommendations. As with any weight loss surgery, it is possible to regain weight over time if the patient does not adhere to our guidelines. Patients who have had this surgery typically experience a 60-80% loss of excess weight over 1 to 2 years. This weight loss is very similar to that with the gastric bypass.

GASTRIC BYPASS

The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is a combined procedure which incorporates elements of restriction and malabsorption. The procedure begins by dividing the stomach to create a small pouch that limits the amount of food that can be eaten. 
  • Stomach reduced to about the size of one's thumb
  • ​Food bypasses the first section of the small intestine
  • ​Malabsorbtion causes a decrease in calorie intake

WEIGHT LOSS WITH THE GASTRIC BYPASS

The amount of weight patients can lose with the gastric bypass will depend almost entirely upon how carefully they follow the program’s nutritional and exercise recommendations. The gastric bypass causes rapid weight loss with patients reaching goal weight in 12-18 months after surgery. The best results today in bariatric centers with extensive experience with the gastric bypass show that patients lose 65-70% of their excess body weight by one year.

DUODENAL SWITCH

The first portion of the procedure involves creating a sleeve just as is done in the sleeve gastrectomy, and the second portion of the procedure involves rerouting the small intestine. 
  • Removes part of the stomach that produces ghrelin, the "hunger hormone"
  • ​Removes 70-80% of the stomach
  • ​Can resolve type-2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and more

WEIGHT LOSS WITH THE DUODENAL SWITCH

Research has shown that patients undergoing this surgery lose about 85% of their excess weight, on average. Additional weight can be lost if you carefully watch your diet and engage in a regular exercise program.  What you consume makes a difference – it is advised that you track what you consume and avoid sugary, fatty foods as a lifestyle change. One of the challenges you may face is not falling back into unhealthy eating habits.

GASTRIC BALLOON

The gastric balloon (also known as an intragastric balloon or belly balloon) is a soft balloon that is inserted into the stomach through the mouth using an endoscope or swallowed. 
  • Non-surgical and reversible
  • ​Procedure generally takes less than a half hour
  • NYBG has placed the most gastric balloons in the US

WEIGHT LOSS WITH THE GASTRIC BALLOON

The amount of weight patients can lose with the gastric balloon depends almost entirely upon how carefully they follow the program’s nutritional and exercise recommendations. Patients who follow the program typically lose 30-35% of their excess body weight by one year, although we have seen motivated patients lose more than that. A patient’s level of commitment to the program will determine their success.

ADJUSTABLE GASTRIC BAND

The adjustable gastric band is a soft, inflatable band that is placed around the upper portion of the stomach. The band locks into place around the stomach, creating a small stomach pouch with most of the stomach below the ring.
  • Adjustable and reversible
  • Patients typically lose 1 pound a week
  • Single incision causes less pain, almost no scarring and a shorter recovery

WEIGHT LOSS WITH THE ADJUSTABLE GASTRIC BAND

The amount of weight patients can lose with the adjustable gastric band will depend almost entirely upon how carefully they follow the program’s nutritional and exercise recommendations. The adjustable gastric band causes slow weight loss, taking 2 to 3 years to lose the desired amount of weight, having several advantages over rapid weight reduction including a reduced risk for gallstones, reduced loss of muscle and no loss of hair. 

REVISIONAL SURGERY

When contemplating another bariatric operation, we must decide if a gastric bypass revision will work and what the risks of such a procedure will be. There are several factors that help us make this decision:
  • When the initial operation was performed
  • ​The postoperative instructions given after the initial surgery
  • ​Initial weight loss history following surgery
  • ​Any complications that may have occurred following the initial operation

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH REVISIONAL SURGERY

At New York Bariatric Group, we are the foremost specialists in revisional bariatric surgery. Our program helps patients from different bariatric surgery practices from all over the world. Our comprehensive program is the difference between learning to live with a failed treatment, and finding ultimate success in a different procedure and aftercare program.

Using our onsite nutritionists and psychologist, we can craft a comprehensive medically supervised weight loss program tailored to the patient’s individual needs. We offer a number of different options.
 
For patients who seek rapid weight loss:
