Open Gastric Bypass Surgery

Dr-Naim-Orange-County-The-Sleeve-Center-3Gastric bypass surgery is a particular type of surgery in which the stomach is divided into two pouches (one smaller upper pouch and one larger lower pouch). This operation is prescribed in order to treat obesity, type II diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, and several other co-occurring conditions.

Bariatric surgery is not for everyone. You may be an appropriate candidate for this weight loss solution if you are overweight by at least 100 pounds and if you have been unable to achieve weight loss results with diet, exercise and behavior modification. This surgery is appropriate for patients who want their life back, strongly desire change, and are able to fully dedicate themselves to achieving their success in their weight loss journey.

Revisional Surgery

Revisional surgery is a type of new and innovative procedure that is appropriate for patients that have already undergone some other type of bariatric procedure unsuccessfully. If you have regained weight after your bariatric procedure, you may be an appropriate candidate for revision surgery with Dr. Naim.

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Dr-Naim-Orange-County-The-Sleeve-Center-4Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is a new and exciting procedure that delivers powerful weight loss with only five small incisions. If you do not have much weight to lose, you can use this procedure as a stand-alone solution. This surgery is good for older patients and patients who are considered to be high-risk. Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy surgery can also be used as part of a staged operation. Patients often report feeling full quickly after only a small amount of food. As a result, patients tend to lose weight rapidly.

Unlike other bariatric procedures, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is the only procedure that does not have issues with malabsorption and foreign bodies. Overall, this surgery is considered to be very low-risk in terms of the need for future operations.

LAP-BAND Placement Procedures

LAP-BAND placement surgery is a gastric banding surgery with a brand name device. This surgical procedure places a small, adjustable belt securely around the upper portion of the stomach. This procedure is completed with a laparoscope. The band itself is made from a very safe material called silicone.

The band can be adjusted simply by adding saline to the band in order to fill it up. LAP-BAND surgery is designed to help restrict the overall size of the stomach so that it can only hold a small amount of food. In addition, the LAP-BAND helps slow food down from passing through to your intestinal system. This sends a signal to your brain to tell you that you are completely full.
