Sleeve Gastrectomy

A sleeve gastrectomy reduces the size of the stomach by removing part of it. Currently, it is the most common type of surgery performed in Australia and it is gaining momentum in other countries as well.

The surgery was discovered accidentally, as it was the first stage of laparoscopic duodenal switch surgery. Due to technical difficulties in patients with a BMI 60 and over, some cases of surgery were cut short after finishing the first stage, which was to sleeve the stomach. Many patient didn’t go back for the second stage as they lost enough weight and maintained it, and the idea of sleeve gastrectomy (SG) as a stand-alone procedure for weight management developed around year 2000.

Sleeve Bipartition Bypass

Sleeve bipartition is also called modified Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.

During the procedure, the stomach is sleeved and a hole in the stomach wall, close to the pylorus, is made. This hole in the stomach wall called the second stomach exit is connected to a shortened section of the small intestine that allows the food to go more quickly into the large intestine. The rest of the intestine is then reconnected to the “bypassed” section, so that a portion of the food will still go through the pylorus and the entirety of the intestine.

Intragastric Balloon

This procedure involves the insertion of a silicone balloon in your stomach. The intervention is done endoscopically, so no incision or stitches are required.

The process takes around 20 minutes and you can be discharged 2 hours after the insertion.

Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass

A gastric bypass procedure will alter your digestive tract by reducing your stomach size and connecting the newly created pouch to the small intestine directly.

The smaller stomach pouch will help you feel full sooner and will reduce your hunger, while the bypassing of a portion of your intestine will reduce the energy absorbed from the ingested food, as well as the absorption of other nutrients.

Revisional Surgery

If you have already had an operation for weight control such as a gastric band and it isn’t working as you had hoped, we have an extensive experience in revisional surgery and we may be able to help.

We offer our expertise both to our own patients and also to those who have had operations with other surgeons.
