Sleeve Gastrectomy (Gastric Sleeve)

What is it?
This popular procedure restricts the volume of food that can be eaten with no intestinal bypass by creating a small stomach about the size of a banana. You will experience noticeable changes in your gut hormones as this procedure promotes satiety, suppresses hunger, and in many cases reverses Type 2 diabetes.

How It Works

  • Minimally invasive
  • Significantly reduces amount of food consumed
  • Reduces size of stomach 

Average Surgery Length
1+ hour

Average Time Away from Work
1 Week

Gastric Bypass

What is it?
A small pouch is attached to small intestines where food is separated. This allows food to bypass portions of the small intestine. Not only are fewer calories and nutrients being absorbed, but changes in gut hormones that promote satiety and suppress hunger result in weight loss and in some cases reverse Type 2 diabetes.

How It Works

  • Long-term, sustained weight loss
  • Limits carbs and sugar
  • Bypasses intestines

Average Surgery Length
2+ hour

Average Time Away from Work
1 Week
