For a variety of reasons, diet and lifestyle changes aren’t enough to lose excess weight for patients with obesity, and weight loss surgery is called for. But that surgery doesn’t have to be scary or intimidating. Assisted by cutting-edge da Vinci robots, our surgeons with the Your New Self DMC Weight Loss Solutions program can perform minimally invasive bariatric surgery at Harper University Hospital and Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital. That means less pain, less scarring, and less recovery time, so you can move forward with your healthy new life.
Gastric bypass reduces the size of the stomach by sectioning off a small pouch at the top of your stomach and rerouting your digestive tract to connect it to the pouch. Your smaller stomach can hold less food, resulting in diet and lifestyle changes that can lead to significant weight loss.
During sleeve gastrectomy—also known as gastric sleeve surgery—most of your stomach is removed. (With this procedure, there’s no need to reroute your digestive tract.) The new, sleeve-shaped stomach can hold less food, contributing to weight loss as part of your weight loss plan.
Note: This surgery is designed for individuals with a body mass equal to or greater than 40, or equal to or greater than 35 with serious co-morbidities
