gastric sleeve
Gastric Sleeve
The gastric sleeve procedure has been the most popular weight loss procedure in the United States since 2013. Surgeons remove about 80 percent of the stomach, and with it, cells that produce a hunger-causing hormone called ghrelin. Not only do people who have had a gastric sleeve eat less, but also they are not tortured by hunger while losing weight.Read More
gastric bypass
Gastric Bypass
The gastric bypass procedure is still considered the gold standard in weight loss surgery. The stomach is divided with staples into a small pouch, which is then rerouted to connect further down in the intestines. People with gastric bypasses eat less and absorb fewer calories, leading to sustainable weight loss and improved health.Read More
