  • Sleeve gastrectomy
  • Orbera intragastric balloon
  • Gastric banding
  • Band over bypass
  • Complex bariatric revisions

Gastric Sleeve

One surgical option that may result in the best patient outcome is a vertical sleeve gastrectomy. During this procedure, a bariatric surgeon removes a portion of the stomach and forms the remaining portion into a thin tube called a gastric sleeve. Over time, weight loss occurs because the amount of food the body can consume and digest is restricted. In most cases, the part of the stomach that produces ghrelin, a hormone that stimulates appetite, is surgically removed.

One benefit of a gastric sleeve surgery is that it includes fewer restrictions on a patient’s diet after surgery, although the amount of food they can eat is drastically reduced. Typically, this operation is recommended for obese patients with a lower BMI.


Orbera Intragastric Balloon

Rose Medical Center and internationally recognized bariatric surgeon Dr. Michael Snyder are proud to offer patients the Orbera intragastric balloon weight loss solution. This innovative procedure allows patients with a BMI between 30 and 40 achieve dramatic weight loss quickly and safely. During the procedure, a bariatric surgeon endoscopically implants saline-filled balloons into the stomach, regulating the amount of food the body can digest and limiting appetite. After the balloons are implanted, patients are provided with nutritional coaching to help them lose weight.

We invite you to learn more about this revolutionary procedure and begin your weight loss journey today!
