OUR PATIENTS SAY
But don’t take our word for it. Here what our past patients have to say about how their live have changes since their surgeries.
“Many people decide that just beginning the process of change is too much effort. I’m so glad that I chose to make a change and transform my life. I pray this inspires you. It’s not where you came from, it’s about how adamant and focused you are that’s really important. Thanks to my doctor and a very special friend who introduced me to my new life. I am forever grateful to Dr. Alejandro López.”
“I had my gastric sleeve May 5, 2014. I’ve lost 95 pounds and couldn’t be happier! Thank you so much Dr. López! You’re an amazing doctor! I had a great experience and am so glad I chose you!”
“Three (3) years ago I decided to make a change in my life.. It wasn’t just a physical transformation but it turned out to be more than that. Now I’m in my own skin. The insecurities I used to have, that used to prevent me from being the person I really was, all along are now gone. I’ve definitely bloomed!! I sure have changed! I’m ME now and enjoying life to the fullest!!”
It is the least invasive of all the bariatric surgery procedures and is the easiest one to make reversible. Most traditional weight loss methods are slower, based on national averages; weight loss is about forty five percent of excess body weight and is a viable option for patients.
Following gastric sleeve surgery, food continues to move through the digestive system naturally, from the time it enters the stomach to the time it is released into the small intestine through the pyloric valve. The primary difference is that after surgery the amount of food that you can eat.
Gastric bypass surgery restricts food intake by creating a small pouch at the top of the stomach. The pouch is then connected to a section of the small intestine, allowing food to bypass the lower stomach and the first two parts of the small intestine. This is a permanent procedure.
