Weight loss surgery

Weight loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, is performed on patients with obesity. There are several types of bariatric procedures, but all focus on making modifications to the digestive system with the goal of significant weight loss.

Weight loss surgery is the gold standard for achieving permanent weight loss and is proven to help patients lose up to 70% of excess body weight. After bariatric surgery, patients can see significant improvements in their health including resolution or improvement with type II diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, sleep apnea, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) symptoms, as well as a reduced risk of stroke and heart attack. Bariatric surgery can improve your quality of life because of increased energy, reduced joint pain, and improved hormone balance which improves mood and fertility, allowing you to do what you enjoy. Our certified team specializes in supporting patients throughout their bariatric surgery journey ensuring long-term success.

Types of bariatric surgery we offer

Weight loss surgery is a proven solution for treating severe obesity and related conditions. These procedures work through restriction, malabsorption, or a combination of both. Restrictive procedures decrease food intake by creating a smaller stomach. Malabsorptive procedures alter the digestive process to limit nutrient absorption. Our Bariatric & Metabolic Institute within Medical City Lewisville offers a range of bariatric surgical options. Your doctor will determine whether you are a bariatric surgery candidate using body mass index (BMI) calculations and a comprehensive medical exam. Surgical options include:

  • Sleeve gastrectomy (gastric sleeve) - A restrictive procedure where a portion of the stomach is removed using a stapling device, creating a thin vertical sleeve of the stomach. This also reduces the amount of ghrelin, or the “hunger hormone,” which can reduce hunger signals and sensations.
  • Gastric bypass (Roux-en-Y) - Combines restriction and malabsorption by dividing the stomach to create a small pouch that empties directly into the lower portion of the jejunum, part of the small intestine.
  • Lap band management - Involves adding or removing fluid in the balloon around the lap band via a port placed under the skin of the abdomen at the time of initial lap band placement.
  • Revision surgery - Our team provides revision surgery to improve results for patients who have experienced complications or inadequate results from previous bariatric surgery.

As part of our commitment to providing you with the most advanced medical treatments, all procedures are completed with robotic surgery. Robotic surgery allows surgeons to perform a more precise procedure with less scarring, less blood loss, and a quicker recovery time.
