Gastric Sleeve Surgery

This permanent weight loss surgery limits the amount of food your stomach can hold. In turn, this reduces your appetite, so you eat less. Additionally, during the surgery, your surgeon removes the major part of the stomach which reduces  the hunger hormone ghrelin to decrease the food craving.

Gastric bypass surgery

This popular weight loss surgery allows you to lose an extraordinary amount of weight in a few months. Our patients can lose up to 70% of their excess  body weight.

Lap band surgery

Commonly considered a reversible weight loss surgery, lap band surgery can limit the amount of food you eat by placing a band around the stomach. Many patients lose up to 40% of their excess weight.

Gastric balloon

This is a temporary procedure not permanent weight loss surgery. Your surgeon places a silicone balloon inside the stomach that limits your food intake and helps you feel full faster.

You can also come to us for revisions on previous weight loss surgeries such as a failed Lap band surgery.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Evansville, IN

Arch Bariatrics specializes in Gastric Sleeve Surgery, the most common weight loss surgery. The procedure will limit your food intake and typically allows patients to achieve the majority of the weight loss in six months. The procedure is done under general anaesthesia by keyhole (Laparoscopic) surgery.

During the procedure, the surgeon makes tiny incisions in the upper abdomen to perform laparoscopic surgery. After removing most of your stomach, the narrow stomach left behind appears like a sleeve or narrow tube. This decreases your food intake, alters your metabolism but does not interfere with the natural path of the food .

Your surgeon will use laparoscopy through tiny incisions that heal promptly. To find out more about how to get your life back on track with bariatric surgery, contact Arch Bariatrics in Evansville, IN, today!
