One of the most popular procedures for our NYC patients and nationwide is the sleeve gastrectomy or gastric sleeve. It has recently become the weight loss surgery procedure of choice for most patients. A sleeve gastrectomy consists of a large portion (80%) of a patient’s stomach being surgically removed through very small incisions, resulting in drastically decreased portion size and diminishes sensation of hunger. We strive to make our procedures as minimally invasive as possible and most operations typically only require several keyhole incisions that are smaller than a dime.

Lap band surgery is another well-known surgical weight loss option which our team has extensive experience with. With this procedure, a small silicone ring is placed around the upper part of the stomach, which results in partial restriction to the passage of food. This serves a few purposes: the patient feels full faster, and will typically consume smaller portions at each meal, which in turn reduces caloric intake.
There are specific differences for each procedure, and we find that our patients achieve the best results when they’ve had a chance to consider all available weight loss surgery options. For this reason, we recommend that you schedule an in-person consultation in our medical office at 71 Carroll Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231. We’ll take the time to walk you through all the various options available (and the requirements particular to each), which will allow you to make an informed decision.
Gastric Bypass procedure is one of the most well-known and reliable means of surgical weight loss. It has been performed for decades, and has proven itself to be very effective for weight loss and resolution of medical problems related to obesity. The procedure entails creating a small stomach pouch and rearranging the small intestine in such a way that allows the ingested food to “bypass” several feet of your intestines.
This serves a few benefits. First and foremost, you will feel full quicker, since the new stomach is much smaller. Second, as a result of this type of surgery, you will absorb fewer calories, since the food is bypassing a long segment of the small intestine. This will in turn allow you to lose weight, keep the weight off, and not feel hungry throughout the weight loss process.
