Bariatric Surgery (Weight-loss Surgery)
An effective weight-loss option
Losing weight can be extremely difficult, and for people who have 100 pounds
or more to lose, it can be even more challenging. For some, weight-loss
surgery may offer a solution where other methods have failed. Bariatric
surgery can be life transforming, offering individuals an opportunity
to lead a more active and satisfying life.
Bariatric surgery options
Dallas Regional Medical Center’s bariatric surgery program provides
education and support that begins before surgery and extends through recovery
to ensure individuals are set up for success. Our bariatric surgery program
includes nutrition and fitness education to provide individuals with the
tools they need to maintain long-term weight loss. Dallas Regional Medical
Center’s experienced surgeons specialize in bariatric surgery, and
offer proven weight-loss techniques such as:
Lap-Band® Adjustable Gastric Banding – A less-invasive procedure that places a device around the upper
part of the stomach to help you feel full sooner and longer. It’s
a healthy way to lose a significant amount of weight and enjoy long-term
results. Surgeons can easily change the diameter of the band to meet weight-loss
needs, and the procedure is also reversible. This technique offers less
pain and trauma, and a quicker recovery than traditional weight-loss surgery methods.
Gastric bypass – There are several types of procedures that are used, but all of
them bypass part of the small intestine that absorbs nutrients. Bypass
techniques involve stapling off an area of the stomach to create a smaller
pouch or surgically removing part of the stomach, both of which create
a smaller stomach area.
