Weight Loss Surgery in Colorado
Weight loss surgery is a life-changing decision, one that needs to be carefully thought out through self-exploration, independent research, and consultations with a bariatric surgeon and other healthcare professionals. Given the gravity of the decision, there is no reason to feel restricted by the Colorado borders in your search for the best weight loss surgeons.
Just a few short hours away, the surgeons and support staff at WeightWise will work closely with you to determine whether or not you are a candidate for weight loss surgery, and if so, which procedure works best for your unique situation.
The first step is to learn more about your options. Here are the three major weight loss procedures that have transformed the lives of patients who take part in the WeightWise program:
The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure, usually simply referred to as gastric bypass, is the most popular weight loss surgery in the U.S. and has transformed countless lives. The WeightWise surgeons are highly trained and skilled in gastric bypass surgery, using minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery techniques.
The laparoscopic adjustable gastric band, or lap band, is an inflatable silicone device that acts as an adjustable belt around the top of the stomach. Approved by the FDA in 2001 to treat obesity, the belt creates a smaller stomach pouch. The tightness can be adjusted during a routine office visit.? The goal is to find the right tightness that will help patients lose one to two pounds a week.
The gastric sleeve procedure, also known as sleeve gastrectomy, involves reducing the size of the patient’s stomach. This newer procedure does not involve bypassing the intestinal tract, which lowers the risk of nutritional deficiency.
