For those with BMI of 30+

Gastric Sleeve

The gastric sleeve is a minimally invasive procedure that produces consistent results with patients losing 50% of their excess weight within the first year. Gastric sleeve surgery works by reducing the size of the stomach, leading to feeling full sooner, which helps patients consume smaller portions of food and ultimately lose weight.

For those with BMI of 35+

Gastric Bypass

The gastric bypass is a popular weight loss surgery that’s proven to be an effective, consistent way of losing weight and keeping it off. It’s a weight loss procedure that involves the creation of a small stomach pouch and rerouting of the small intestine. This surgery aims to reduce the amount of food the stomach can hold and alter the absorption of nutrients, resulting in weight loss.

Mini Gastric Bypass

The mini gastric bypass is a faster, easier & less complex method of achieving the benefits of standard gastric bypass. Like the standard gastric bypass it involves creating a pouch and rerouting the small intestine but is considered less complex than a full gastric bypass because it involves fewer connections between the stomach and the small intestine.
