These silicone adjustable bands are placed around the upper portion of the stomach to restrict the amount of food that can be consumed, and to create a longer feeling of satiety.
During the vertical sleeve gastrectomy, the stomach is restricted by stapling and dividing it vertically. Approximately 60% of the stomach is removed, so you feel full more quickly.
The stomach is divided into a smaller top portion (pouch) which is about the size of an egg. The larger part of the stomach is bypassed and no longer stores or digests food. The small intestine is also divided and connected to the new stomach pouch to allow food to pass. This results in the stomach being able to hold less food and the decreased absorption of food.
This is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to treat patients who regain weight after gastric bypass surgery.
Robotic Bariatric Surgery
This is a form of sleeve gastrectomy and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgeries that utilize robotic assistance.
