Weight Loss Surgery in Ennis, TX

#1 Weight Loss Surgery in Hillsboro, TX

Our experienced surgeons can perform bariatric surgery also known as weight loss surgery using a robot called the da Vinci Robotic System. Robotic surgery uses small incisions instead of large abdominal incisions and therefore is less invasive than traditional bariatric surgery.

Weight loss surgery in Hillsboro, TX is an effective tool to help people who are severely obese and have been unable to lose weight through diet or other traditional means. Weight loss surgery procedures, also called bariatric surgery, have evolved in recent years. From traditional open procedures to minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery, the options for weight loss surgery have grown. The latest option for weight loss surgery is robotic surgery.

What is weight loss surgery?

Weight loss surgery is a surgical procedure designed to help the patient lose weight by restricting the absorption of nutrients and/or reducing the amount of food the stomach can hold. In most cases, our surgeons will perform these procedures with minimally invasive techniques.

When is weight loss surgery appropriate?

Weight loss surgery is most appropriate for patients who aren’t able to lose weight with lifestyle changes alone. This procedure isn’t recommended for people who need to lose only a few pounds. Instead, it’s recommended for people who have a body mass index of at least 40 or are more than 100 pounds overweight. North Texas Surgical Specialists also perform weight loss surgery on patients who have a BMI of at least 35 and at least one condition related to obesity, such as hypertension or type 2 diabetes. In special cases, other patients may be good candidates for this procedure. Patients interested in weight loss surgery should schedule a consultation with one of our doctors to determine if this is the best option for them.

What is the gastric sleeve?

During gastric sleeve surgery, our surgeons remove 80% of the stomach, leaving the patient with a smaller, tubular pouch. This pouch holds much less food, which reduces the number of calories a patient can consume. In addition, it also influences the gut hormones responsible for hunger and blood sugar control.

What is gastric bypass?

During gastric bypass, our surgeons create a small stomach pouch by dividing the top of the stomach from the rest of the organ. They also divide the first portion of the small intestine and connects part of it to the new stomach pouch. Finally, they will connect the other part of the divided small intestine to a lower section of the small intestine. This serves as a pathway for digestive enzymes and stomach acid in the bypassed part of the stomach.

Gastric bypass works by reducing the amount of food the patient can eat at one time before feeling full. In addition, this procedure reduces the absorption of calories and nutrients, and it alters some of the hormones in the gut to suppress feelings of hunger.
