Gastric Sleeve

The surgeons at Texas Laparoscopic Consultants are highly experienced with Gastric Sleeve procedures. A Gastric Sleeve surgery involves removing a portion of the stomach. The surgeon creates a much smaller stomach, which is shaped like a sleeve. This surgery is highly effective for weight loss because it reduces the amount of food you are able to consume and helps control cravings. In addition to significant weight loss, Gastric Sleeve patients who are willing to commit to lifestyle changes often experience improvement in conditions such as Type 2 diabetes and hypertension.

Gastric Bypass

Gastric Bypass surgery has been proven highly effective in treating obesity related health conditions such as high Cholesterol, Type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea and hypertension. In a Gastric Bypass procedure, the surgeon creates a smaller stomach pouch and reconnects that to the lower intestine, resulting in lowered capacity for food intake and diminished absorption of calories. After Gastric Bypass, patients usually report improvements in their overall health, activity level and self confidence.

Duodenal Switch

Duodenal Switch surgery, also known as Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch or BPD, is very effective for people suffering from severe obesity. In a Duodenal Switch procedure the surgeon removes a portion of the stomach and also redirects the small intestine. The redirection of the small intestine limits the calories that are absorbed by the body. Patients who receive this procedure are able to eat slightly larger meals than with other bariatric surgeries. Duodenal Switch surgery has been proven effective in treating high Cholesterol, sleep apnea, hypertension and Type 2 diabetes, and it has restored health to many patients.

Gastric Balloon

The Gastric Balloon procedure is a non-surgical option for patients who need to lose between 20 and 40 pounds. Texas Laparoscopic Consultants are proud to offer this safe and effective alternative to surgical interventions for patients who have struggled with diets on their own and are ready to shed excess weight. The Gastric Balloon is a soft silicone balloon that is inserted endoscopically under light sedation, and is removed after six months. Patients also receive ongoing support to encourage healthy habits to keep the weight off and maintain an active lifestyle.

Gastric Band

The skilled surgeons at Texas Laparoscopic Consultants offer several types of Gastric Banding procedures. Gastric Banding is a versatile bariatric surgery that is safe and effective for patients with a variety of needs. The surgeon places a device around the stomach, creating a small upper pouch through which food gradually empties. This procedure does not involve any repositioning of the intestines and it results in consistent weight loss by restricting food intake. Patients who commit to a healthier lifestyle with the Gastric Band will experience significant improvement in overall health.

EXPERTS IN THE TREATMENT OF OBESITY

Texas Laparoscopic Consultants are dedicated to improving patients lives with our safe and comprehensive weight loss program. The results of weight loss affect much more than a patient’s waistline. Effective weight loss can significantly reduce severe health risks and obesity related diseases like hypertension and diabetes. Bariatric surgery can often lead to curing such conditions while also improving body image. These effects impact the health of the body and mind, allowing patients to not just look better, but to feel better and live better.
