Dr. Larry L. Hobson
Dr. Alfred B. Johnson

Bariatric Gastric Bypass Operations Performed

1. Vertical Gastric Bypass
2. Laparoscopic Banding - The Lap-Band
3. Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass

Lap-Band (Laparoscopic Surgery)
The lap-band is a pure restrictive surgery, meaning it restricts and enforces the portion amount of food you can take in. There is a revision rate for this surgery which is said to be between 14 and 47%, meaning that the patient needs to be taken back to the operating room for a revision of the lap-band. Some of the realistic expectations of the Lap Band include, a slow, gradual weight loss, less weight loss than with some other procedures such as the Gastric Bypass, 40-60% excess weight loss in 1-2 years, easy to defeat the this procedure if patient is non compliant and continues to consume high calorie liquids, etc.

Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
This stomach bypass procedure involves constructing a small gastric pouch, which is constructed of a Y-shaped limb of small bowel of varying lengths. At Peachtree Bariatrics, Dr. Duncan performs the laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure with four to five small incisions (1/4 to 1/2 inch) that are used instead of the 10 to 12 inch abdominal incision as in the traditional "open approach". In the laparoscopic procedure, the laparoscope which is connected to a video camera, is inserted through the small abdominal incisions, giving the Dr. Duncan a magnified view of the patient's internal organs on a television monitor. The entire operation is performed "inside" the abdomen after gas has been inserted to expand the abdomen. The use of laparoscopic surgery for obesity has been performed by leading International and American laparoscopic surgeons such as Dr. Duncan since the late 1990's.

Laparoscopic or open bariatric surgery, such as gastric banding or bypass is not an easy solution to morbid obesity and weight loss. It is a serious surgical procedure, involving health risks. To produce lasting weight loss it requires a long-term patient commitment to eating a healthy diet and following a regular program of physical exercise. Life-long use of nutritional supplements may also be necessary. So, before deciding, discuss your options fully with your doctor. © 2003-2017 Bariatric-Surgery.Info - Terms - Contact - Information - Resources
