Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass
Gastric bypass surgery is performed to help morbidly obese patients lose significant amounts of weight—without gaining it back. It is considered the golden standard for obesity surgery, with a success rate of over 80%. Most patients lose at least half of their excess weight and keep it off for more than five years.
Laparoscopic Gastric Banding
Lap-Band® is an adjustable gastric banding system used to facilitate gradual weight loss in morbidly obese patients. The name of the procedure signifies the laparoscopic techniques and gastric band used in this minimally invasive surgery.
Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery
Single incision laparoscopic surgery is the latest minimally invasive procedure with little to no scarring and quicker recovery time. The surgery is performed through one port entry through the belly button. Dr. Ahmad routinely performs single incision gastric bypass and single incision lap banding.
Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
Sleeve gastrectomy is a restrictive form of bariatric surgery that shrinks the stomach to approximately 15% of its original size. It is commonly performed on severely obese patients who are not healthy enough to undergo a successful gastric bypass, biliopancreatic diversion or similar major surgery. The procedure enables rapid weight loss with fewer complications than the more conventional weight loss surgeries, but its effectiveness loses stride because there is no intestinal bypass.
Our commitment to you does not end after your weight loss surgery surgery as research shows that ongoing attention and post-operative education result in increased long term health and success in keeping lost weight off. It is due to this that we offer support groups and our staff is accessable to you every step of the way. Each patient is treated as a unique individual and given undivided attention and dedication so that they can receive the best possible results.
Dr. Ahmad also performs general surgery which includes laparoscopic cholecystectomy, colon resection, heller myotomy for achalasia, nissen fundoplication for acid reflux, laparoscopic hernia repair, paraesophageal hernia repair and laparoscopic adrenalectomy.
There were so many things I couldn't do. I couldn't exercise, bike ride, or go out on my boat- today I can do all those things with a passion. I've lost 220 lbs and it's been the greatest experience of my life. Thanks to Dr. Ahmad and his team.-Richard, Entrepreneur
