Weight Loss Procedures Offered
Our Weight Loss Center in Oklahoma City offers multiple options to help you achieve your weight loss goals. Once other weight loss options have been exhausted, surgical procedures like the following can be considered.
- Gastric Bypass: In this surgical weight loss procedure, stapling creates a small (15 to 20cc) stomach pouch. The remainder of the stomach is not removed, but is completely stapled shut and divided from the stomach pouch. The outlet from this newly formed pouch empties directly into the lower portion of the jejunum, thus bypassing calorie absorption.
- Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy: Several studies have shown that this surgical weight loss procedure can be performed with less perioperative mortality than a gastric bypass procedure. The weight loss from a vertical sleeve gastrectomy is felt to be more significant than with an adjustable band initially but somewhat less dramatic than with a gastric bypass.
If you’re considering bariatric surgery in Oklahoma City we believe that the Weight Loss Center provides the most comprehensive, responsible and sustainable weight loss program in Oklahoma. Through weight loss support groups, free weight loss seminars, and our bariatric surgery procedures, we offer a comprehensive solution to morbid obesity – an Oklahoma epidemic.
