What Does Dr Barnes offer?
Weight loss surgery is recognized as the most effective treatment for morbid obesity. Dr Barnes's practice offers several weight loss surgery procedures, including laparoscopic gastric bypass, lap band, sleeve gastrectomy and revision procedures.
Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass involves making a small gastric pouch and bypassing the stomach and a portion of the small intestine. This operation results in excellent weight loss (75-80% excess weight loss), high percentage of improvement or cure of many related diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, reflux, fatty liver, sleep apnea and many more. Amazingly, in many patients most of these improvements occur in the first few weeks after surgery and weight loss is complete in 1 year in most people.
Lap band is the placement of a band around the top of the stomach with an inflatable balloon on the inside that is inflated slowly over several months. The patient eats less and feels satisfied on less food. With poper adjustment, weight loss occurs at about 1-2 pounds per week.
Sleeve gastrectomy involves removing most of the stomach to create a stomach tube. The patient feels full on less food. Weight loss is typically equivalent to the band without adjustments.
Revision surgery is a reoperation of a prior weight loss surgery such as stomach stapling (VBG), lap band or gastric bypass due toproblematic symptoms or lack of weight loss.
You will have not just a surgical procedure, but access to personalized support before your surgery and long after it. We offer you committed help for a life long solution to obesity.
What can you expect?
First of all, you can expect the highest safety standards. Dr Barnes carefully evaluates you before surgery to determe which procedure can be performed safely and to maximum effect. Most gastric bypass patients go home the next day, most lap band patients the same day and revision and gastrectomy patients in 2 to 3 days. Average weight loss for the gastric bypass is 75-80% in the first year, lap band is 60% over 2 years, sleeve gastrectomy 60% over 1 to 2 years. Of course you can lose more or less than that depending on how closely you follow the recommended lifestyle changes. You will have lots of help with appropriate diet and behavior changes. Every person has access to guidance from a dietician and a psychologist. You will have post-op visits with Dr Barnes to assess your progress. Most morbid obesity related medical problems improve or go away within weeks to months after gastric bypass and improve or go away after lap band depending on how much weight you lose. Post op visits are important for everyone, but especially for lap band patients, who will require monthly "fills" in the first 6 to 9 months to begin steady weight loss. Support groups are available as well.
What makes your experience special with Dr Barnes?
The success of each and every patient is important to Dr Barnes. You will have personal attention from Dr Barnes, who gets to know each of his patients, and you also will have access to a team of professionals to help you, as needed, before and after your surgery.
Most insurance is accepted and financing is available.
