Surgical Weight Loss Solutions in Tampa

The doctor will work with you to determine which surgical procedure is the best for your individual situation. At Florida Hospital Carrollwood, we offer a number of weight loss surgical solutions, including:

Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass

Gastric Bypass Surgery Tampa

With the Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, a small pouch is created using part of the stomach. This pouch is then connected directly to the middle portion of the small intestine (jejunum), bypassing the rest of the stomach and the upper part of the small intestine (duodenum). This allows food to pass quickly through the intestine, causing important changes in hormone production that lead to weight loss and other benefits, such as preventing diabetes.

This surgical procedure for weight loss is performed using many small incisions, with small instruments and a camera to guide the surgery (laparoscopic methods.)

 

Gastric Sleeve

Sleeve Gastrectomy Tampa

Another option for weight loss is a gastric sleeve, and efficient weight-loss surgery that eliminates approximately 90% of the stomach, which also causes food to pass quickly through the small intestine, and provokes changes in hormone production that lead to weight loss. This is also done via laparoscopy.
