Sterling Surgicare’s Bariatric Operations
Adjustable Gastric Banding
An adjustable plastic and rubber band is inserted around the upper portion of the stomach to form a small gastric (stomach) pouch. An easily accessible subcutaneous (under the skin) port connects to the band, which contains a balloon-like silicone inner tube.
Adjusting the band changes how quickly food leaves the new pouch.
This procedure is minimally invasive, adjustable, and easily reversible. It does not involve re-routing of the intestines and therefore it involves no cutting or stapling.
Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
(gastric sleeve or VSG)
Gastric sleeve is a less invasive weight loss surgery because it does not re-route the bowel or involve reconnecting of the intestines like gastric bypass. Patients can lose up to 70 percent of excess body weight a year after surgery.
Proven ‘more effective’ (patients lose more weight overall at a faster rate) than the gastric band. Gastric sleeve bariatric surgery is also well suited for patients who do not want be committed to life-long office visits required for gastric banding procedures.
A large portion of the stomach is closed off. This leaves a small pouch to hold food, restricting the amount that can be eaten at one time. The small intestine is cut below the duodenum and reattached to the new stomach pouch, leaving a shortened path for food to travel through.
This procedure is performed laparoscopically. Most patients are able to leave the hospital two days after surgery and are able to resume normal activities by the time they come home.
Duodenal Switch (DS)
Duodenal switch surgery is a combination of a gastric sleeve and gastric bypass surgery. It is considered one of the more specialized weight loss surgery procedures and is only performed by bariatric surgeons who have successfully undergone procedure-specific training to perform it.
Dr. Ayotunde Adeyeri, with offices in Holmdel, Old Bridge and Freehold, is one of the few bariatric surgeons in the state of New Jersey who specializes in performing this newer operation to achieve a high volume of weight loss.
Duodenal Switch weight loss surgery, (also called DS surgery) can be very helpful to help patients who did not achieve their weight goals with their gastric sleeve procedure or experienced a complication.
This lesser known procedure actually offers the patient the highest opportunity to lose the highest volume of weight loss.
Revision Bariatric Surgery
If you have experienced poor weight loss, weight regain or complications from a previous bariatric procedure, hope is not lost.
There are several safe and minimally invasive surgical options to finally achieve the desired weight loss goal.
Note: Only a few doctors in central New Jersey have advanced expertise to perform bariatric revision surgery.
