While Gastric Sleeve Surgery may be the most common type of bariatric procedure, there are a variety of procedures patients can undergo to fight the effects of obesity. These procedures include:
Lap Band Surgery — This procedure involves placing an adjustable silicon band around the upper part of the stomach to decrease appetite and capacity for eating large meals.
Gastric Bypass — This surgery involves creating a small stomach pouch and bypassing three to five feet of small intestine.
Intragastric Balloon — This new procedure involves inserting a saline-filled silicone balloon into the stomach to reduce appetite.
In addition to these procedures, Dr. Terushkin also performs several general surgical procedures to address individual ailments, such as hernia or gallbladder surgeries.
