Understanding Bariatric Surgery:
Bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, is a surgical procedure designed to help individuals with severe obesity achieve significant and sustained weight loss. Bariatric surgery may be recommended for individuals who have not achieved successful weight loss through diet, exercise, and other lifestyle interventions.

Qualification and PreparationIf you qualify for bariatric surgery, your surgeon will recommend specific lab tests and provide instructions to prepare for the procedure. These preparations may include dietary changes, lifestyle modifications, and pre-operative evaluations to ensure your safety and optimize surgical outcomes.

Types of Bariatric SurgeryBariatric surgeries work in different ways to achieve weight loss. Here are the procedures for different types of bariatric surgeries offered at Neo TrueNorth:

  • Gastric Bypass: One of the most common weight loss surgeries, gastric bypass involves creating a small pouch by dividing the stomach and connecting it directly to the small intestine. This restricts the amount of food and nutrients absorbed, leading to weight loss.
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy: This procedure involves removing approximately 80% of the stomach, leaving behind a small, sleeve-shaped stomach pouch. Sleeve gastrectomy reduces the size of the stomach and decreases hunger, promoting weight loss.
  • Gastric Banding: In gastric banding, a silicone band is placed around the upper part of the stomach to create a small pouch. This restricts the amount of food that can be consumed, leading to gradual weight loss over time.
  • Duodenal Switch: This complex procedure involves creating a sleeve-shaped stomach pouch and rerouting the small intestine to limit food absorption. While effective for weight loss, duodenal switch surgery may increase the risk of malnutrition and nutrient deficiencies.

Treatment and Recovery ProcessAfter bariatric surgery, patients receive comprehensive care and support from our multidisciplinary team. Post-operative care may include monitoring for complications, dietary guidance, lifestyle counseling, and ongoing support to promote long-term success and optimal health.
