General And Bariatric Surgery Camarillo, Oxnard And Ventura
Weight loss surgeries are collectively referred to as bariatric surgery. Bariatric surgery is usually recommended when diet and exercise are not enough or when a person suffers from serious health issues related to weight. The surgical procedures that are made during bariatric surgery are designed to bring about weight loss by restricting food intake into the stomach or reducing the absorption of nutrients, or both.
At Solar Health Doctors we aim to provide outstanding Bariatric Surgery Camarillo, Oxnard and Ventura residents can rely on to assist with their weight related health problems.
Convenient Ventura County Bariatric Surgery Oxnard, Ventura And Camarillo
Our conveniently located Ventura County clinics provide the best Bariatric Surgery for Oxnard, Ventura And Camarillo residents. We offer the following Bariatric surgery procedures
Lap-Band – one of the more common bariatric procedures, lap-band surgery involves placing an inflatable silicone band around the upper part of the stomach to create a small stomach pouch. This reduces the amount of food required for a patient to feel ‘full’, thereby cutting down on calorie intake and causing weight loss.
Sleeve Gastrectomy – with this procedure, around 80% of the stomach is removed. This smaller stomach holds less food than a normal sized stomach thereby reducing the volume of food that can be consumed and subsequently lowering calorie intake, thus resulting in weight loss.
Gastric Bypass – gastric bypass surgery involves creating a small stomach pouch at the top of the stomach then dividing the first section of small intestine and attaching the lower part (still attached to the rest of the intestine) directly to the small stomach pouch. The top section of intestine (attached to the bottom section of stomach) is reattached to the small intestine further down. A gastric bypass aims to reduce the volume of food consumed, reduce the amount of calories that are absorbed and encourage changes in gut hormone that will help suppress hunger and stimulate a feeling of satiety. This can also help to reverse one the main causes of obesity related type 2 diabetes.
Revisional Bariatric Procedures – these are done on patients who already have one type of bariatric procedure and either require adjustments, such as replacing or repositioning a gastric band, or conversion of their existing procedure to another.
