Weight Loss Surgery in Tulsa Oklahoma
Weight loss surgery empowers you to transform your life for the better.
However, all surgical clinics are not created equal. Your optimal program will include a comprehensive team of specialists that provide one-on-one counseling to help you meet your health goals pre-op and remain on the path to wellness post-op.
Doctors Gregory Walton and Toby Broussard, our surgeons at WeightWise, are dedicated to working closely with you to determine whether weight loss surgery is the best choice for you and, if so, which procedure will meet your needs.
To get you started on your journey to health, consider the following three surgeries available to you at WeightWise:
The most widely-used weight loss surgery in the U.S., Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery can now be performed laparoscopically for a minimally invasive process that promotes quick healing. Our bariatric surgeons at WeightWise have revitalized lives using this form gastric re-routing.
This popular new procedure, also known as a sleeve gastrectomy, reduces the size of a patient’s stomach without bypassing the intestinal tract. Thus, patients are able to achieve weight loss similar to that which can be attained with gastric bypass or lapband surgery, without intestinal rearrangement or the placement of a foreign object. This operation has less long term complications requiring reoperation than the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass or the laparoscopic adjustable gastric band.
Approved by the FDA to treat obesity in 2001, lapband surgery uses a laparoscopic adjustable band to create a smaller stomach pouch that enables the patient to feel full while eating less. Using a silicone adjustable belt around the top of the stomach, your surgeon can adjust the belt’s tightness during routine office visits to ensure the perfect fit. Patients with a lapband are estimated to lose one to two pounds each week.
