Operations

Surgery to lose weight?

There are many variants of weightloss surgery, but all operations involve the stomach and often the small intestine as well. In the Netherlands there are three operations that are performed the most. Therefore we have the most experience with these three procedures and the best results. Below is a brief description of the various procedures

Treatment

Gastric Sleeve (Gastric reduction surgery)

After you have been put to sleep, the operation will begin. The surgeon will first take a good look at the inside of your abdomen. Then follows the first step where we separate the stomach from the surrounding tissue on one side. A gastric tube is inserted through the mouth. We use this tube to precisely measure the thickness of the resized stomach.

Gastric Bypass (bypass surgery)

After you have been put to sleep, the operation will begin. The surgeon will first take a good look at the inside of your abdomen. Then follows the first step, the stomach is resized to the size of an egg. The rest of the stomach remains in place and is therefore not removed. Because part of the stomach is shut down, less hunger hormone is produced. So you can eat less, while still feeling less hungry.

Treatment

Mini Gastric Bypass (bypass surgery)

After you have been put to sleep, we will first take a good look at the inside of your abdomen. Then follows the first step where we staple the stomach into a small tube. This tube is somewhat longer than with a regular gastric bypass to prevent bile from flowing back into the esophagus. The rest of the stomach remains in place and is therefore not removed. Because part of the stomach is shut down, less hunger hormone is produced. So you can eat less, while still feeling less hungry.
