In Gastric Bypass procedure, a small stomach pouch is created to restrict food intake. Next, a Y-shaped section of the small intestine is attached to the pouch to allow food to bypass the lower stomach, the duodenum (the first segment of the small intestine), and the first portion of the jejunum (the second segment of the small intestine). This bypass reduces the absorption of nutrients and thereby reduces the calorie intake.
LAPAROSCOPIC SLEEVE GASTRECTOMY
Sleeve Gastrectomy (Tube Gastrectomy) procedure involves removing the lateral 2/3rds of the stomach with a stapling device. It can be done laparoscopically ( keyhole surgery) but is not reversible. It basically leaves a stomach tube instead of a stomach sack.
The surgery has changed my life! I have lost just shy of 100 lbs in less than a year and feel terrific. People that have not seen me in a while don't recognize me! This past winter, I could out ski anyone down the steepest of mountains...first across the finish line every time! I sleep better than I ever have and wake up feeling energized and exhilarated! Dr. Eslami and his staff were amazing and continue to show complete support throughout my wellness check-ups. I could not have imagined such fulfilling results. If you are over weight and have struggled like I did throughout the years...this is the surgery for you! You will love the new you and the only regret will be that you did not do the surgery sooner.
I would like to thank Dr. Eslami and his staff for giving me my life back. I am a year and two months post op and have lost 140 pounds. Having gastric bypass surgery was the best decision I have ever made. I thought about having surgery about 10 years ago and was not metnally prepared and couldn't find a surgeon I connected with. Dr. Eslami is an awesome surgeon. Right from the start he made me feel comfortable and his is very knowledgeable. There are so many things I am able to do now like cross my legs, get on the floor and play with my four year old, run, lift weights and go ziplining. I continue to attend monthly support group meetings through Dr. Eslami's office and feel they are very benificial for my ongoing success. Thank you so much Dr. Eslami you have me my life back.
