Knowing that every case is different, Texas Health offers a variety of weight-loss procedures designed to meet your individual needs.
Duodenal SwitchThe duodenum, or the first portion of the small intestine, is divided just past the outlet of the stomach. A segment of the distal (last portion) small intestine is then brought up and connected to the outlet of the newly created stomach, so that when the patient eats, the food goes through a newly created tubular stomach pouch and empties directly into the last segment of the small intestine.
Gastric Bypass SurgeryDuring this procedure, your surgeon creates a small stomach pouch that restricts the amount of food you can eat. The digestive tract is rerouted, which decreases the amount of nutrients, fat and calories your body absorbs.
Laparoscopic Adjustable BandDuring this procedure, a band is placed around the stomach to slow the passage of food from the upper to lower stomach. This procedure allows for the adjustment of the band to meet your needs.
Revisional ProceduresSurgeons on the medical staff work with patients whose previous weight-loss surgeries did not achieve their desired outcomes, for whatever reason. No matter where your initial procedure was done, a physician on the medical staff of a Texas Health Hospital can discuss your options for a revisional procedure that may meet your needs.
Sleeve GastrectomyDuring this procedure 60 to 80 percent of the stomach is removed, creating a sleeve or tube-like structure. As a result, this restricts the amounts of food you can eat.
