We understand your

Nothing is more frustrating than always having to fight the pounds. No one chooses to be overweight. Obesity is a creeping disease that eventually affects your health. In addition, obese people are more likely to suffer from depression, shame and prejudice from others. We have been able to help many people in recent years on their way to a more enjoyable and healthier life through gastric bypass surgery.

We have an extensive team of specialists, psychologists, dieticians and lifestyle coaches. Individual attention is one of our most important values. Therefore, with us you are not a number but you speak to the same people from the start to the after process. The process begins with a screening and then surgery, but we will guide you for up to 5 years after your surgery. This is how we help you stay healthy in the future.

Watch the video explaining Gastric Sleeve (Tubular Stomach) treatment from our gastrointestinal surgeon Dr. Edo Aarts below.

Explanation of treatment

Gastric Sleeve (Tubular Stomach)

After you are put to sleep, surgery begins. The surgeon first takes a good look at the inside of your abdomen. Then comes the first step where we detach the stomach from the surrounding tissue on one side. A stomach tube is inserted through the mouth. We use this tube to precisely measure the thickness of the tube stomach.

The part of the stomach we want to remove is then cast off and cut loose. With that, the stomach becomes about ¾ smaller. The loose stomach part is now removed from the abdomen through a small incision. What remains is a tube stomach as thick as your thumb on the inside. We check everything one more time before the operation is finished. When you wake up we have already closed all the wounds. So from the operation itself you don’t notice anything at all.

The differences with Gastric Bypass and Mini Gastric Bypass:

  • No changes to the intestines
  • No chance of an internal hernia (twist of the intestines)
  • Slightly less likely to be deficient in vitamins and minerals
  • Slightly less weight loss in the long run
  • Poorer results in people who have diabetes
  • Part of the stomach is permanently removed; it does not grow back

What are the wait times

At WeightWorks, there are no long wait times. Once you have started the preliminary process and the screening shows that you are suitable for one of our surgeries, you can be scheduled for your surgery within a few weeks. This is possible because we have a professional specialty team with one specialty, gastric reduction surgery. This allows us to work efficiently and thus help you quickly.
