Weight Loss Surgery
At the Center for Weight Loss Success, our current surgical options include:
|Sleeve Gastrectomy:A newer surgical procedure in which a small “sleeve-shaped” stomach is created. Approximately 75% of the “stretchy” portion of the stomach is removed. This also removes the portion of the stomach that produces the hormone ghrelin, which causes you to feel hungry. The remaining “sleeve” of the stomach is about the size and shape of a medium banana.|
|Lap Banding: A band is placed around the very top of the stomach. This band can be adjusted (tightened or loosened) by injecting saline into it via a port placed under the skin.|
|Banded Gastric Bypass:A very small gastric pouch is created from the proximal stomach and then the beginning of the small intestine is connected to it, “bypassing” the remaining stomach. Dr. Clark, the premier expert on gastric bypass in Virginia, additionally places a band at the distal end of the stomach to assist with long term success.|
Ours is the most comprehensive weight loss program available anywhere. Because we believe so strongly that bariatric surgery in Virginia should be affordable, the Center for Weight Loss Success has the most competitive prices around. This, coupled with Dr. Clark’s expertise, makes the weight loss surgery options at the Center for Weight Loss Success your prescription for long term weight loss success.
