YOUR TREATMENTS:

Gastric Sleeve

The Sleeve Gastrectomy (also referred to as the Gastric Sleeve, Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy, or VSG) is the most commonly performed weight loss procedure worldwide.

Gastric Bypass

Gastric Bypass is the weight loss procedure with the longest track record used in the treatment of obesity around the world. Gastric Bypass surgery combines restrictive/metabolic surgical procedures. It is restrictive in the sense that it ‘restricts’ how much food the stomach can hold and is ‘metabolic’ in that it influences gut hormones, blood sugar regulation, and metabolism.
