gastric sleeve surgery

also known as sleeve gastrectomy, is quickly becoming the most popular weight loss surgery in Louisiana. This minimally invasive, laparoscopic, procedure takes only one hour to perform and offers patients a quick recovery time. The gastric sleeve is a restrictive procedure; it limits the amount of food you can eat but doesn’t significantly alter the anatomy or reroute the intestines. Most sleeve patients report that they feel less hungry throughout the day and feel full after eating only a small amount of food. Current research has shown excellent results. Patients can lose up to 64% of their excess weight within 12 months and see improvements in their weight related health conditions. *These are individual results. No outcome is guaranteed. The surgeons at The Surgical Specialists of Louisiana perform numerous procedures daily.

Revisional Weight Loss Surgery

Over the years and for various reasons, some patients may experience weight regain following their initial weight loss procedure. The Surgical Specialists of Louisiana are experts at Revisional Weight Loss Surgery which can be performed laparoscopically or endoscopically. If you have experienced inadequate weight loss, insufficient resolution of comorbidities or medical complications due to weight loss surgery you may be a candidate for either minimally invasive or incisionless revisional surgery.
