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
With Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, a small pouch is created from the stomach. This pouch is connected directly to the middle portion of the small intestine (jejunum), bypassing the rest of the stomach and the upper portion of the small intestine (duodenum). This leads to rapid transit of food into the intestine causing major changes in hormone release which leads to the weight loss and other benefits, such as resolution of diabetes.
This surgical weight loss procedure is done by making several small incisions and using small instruments and a camera to guide the surgery (laparoscopic approach).
Sleeve Gastrectomy Tampa
Another option for weight loss is a sleeve gastrectomy, an effective weight loss operation that removes approximately 90% of the stomach also leading to rapid transit of food into the small intestine and also causing hormonal changes which lead to weight loss. This is also done laparoscopically.
