Choosing Weight Loss Surgery - Which One is Best for You?
Weight Loss Surgery Options Offered at MetroHealth
Sleeve Gastrectomy, in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size and made into the shape of a small banana. Despite being a restrictive procedure, sleeve gastrectomy shows promising results in the improvement of multiple health conditions, including high cholesterol (hyperlipidemia), diabetes, sleep apnea, high blood pressure (hypertension), etc.
Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, which creates a stomach pouch out of a small portion of the stomach and attaches it directly to the small intestine, bypassing a large part of the stomach and duodenum.
- The smaller stomach is connected directly to the middle portion of the small intestine (jejunum), bypassing the rest of the stomach and the upper portion of the small intestine (duodenum)
- The most frequently performed weight loss surgery in the United States and is the gold standard procedure for weight loss surgery
- Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Surgery also showed excellent results in the improvement of multiple health conditions, including high blood pressure (hypertension), high cholesterol (hyperlipidemia), diabetes, heartburn, GERD, infertility and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
