Weight Loss Surgery in Naples, Florida
Obesity is a prevalent problem in the United States, but those who have struggled unsuccessfully to lose weight may qualify for weight loss surgery. Our programs for weight loss surgery in Naples give you all the tools you need to lose weight and keep it off, including ongoing guidance, support and education.
Weight loss surgery helps you lose weight by reducing your stomach capacity. GI Surgical Specialists offers weight loss surgery in Naples for:
- Gastric Bypass. Roux-en-Y gastric bypass has been performed worldwide for over 50 years. It generally takes under two hours to perform. The procedure consists of making a small stomach referred to as the gastric pouch. The small intestine is rerouted, diverting food past the majority of the stomach and a small portion of the small intestine.
- Sleeve gastrectomy. This weight loss surgery is also known as the gastric sleeve procedure and reshapes the stomach into a much smaller tube to limit the amount of food you can eat. Like LAP-BAND, sleeve gastrectomy helps you feel full faster to help you lose weight. Minimally invasive sleeve gastrectomy in Ft. Myers will reduce your risk of infection and not require any medical devices in your body.
- Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG). Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) is a purely endoscopic procedure with no incisions or stomach stapling that reconstructs your stomach into a smaller chamber. It is an outpatient procedure that offers significant weight loss results with lower risks of complications and shorter recovery time.
- Endoscopic Bypass Revision (TORe). This revisionary weight loss surgery is for patient of gastric bypass whose stomach pouches have stretched over time, which can potentially result in weight regain. TORe is performed without external incisions or scarring and usually in an outpatient setting.
GI Surgical Specialists also offers individualized medical weight loss programs for those who are not ready or do not qualify for weight loss surgery. Medical weight loss helps you lose weight with meal replacements, nutritional counseling, behavioral adjustments and fitness programs.
