Orange County weight loss surgery patient - Francine

Weight Loss Surgery

Weight Loss Surgery is by far the most effective and most lasting treatment for obesity. The two most commonly performed weight loss surgeries are gastric sleeve surgery and gastric bypass surgery.

Weight loss surgery works by changing the biology that regulates bodyweight. In effect, weight loss surgery changes the bodyweight “set-point” to a new, lower, healthier weight.

This biology change is what makes weight loss surgery so compelling! It is why patients can lose a large amount of weight, and maintain the weight loss over time.*

Weight loss surgery, however, is not a cure for obesity. Weight loss surgery does not change a person’s predisposition to gain weight, and therefore bad habits after surgery can limit weight loss, and cause long-term weight regain.

The keys to success are excellent surgery, excellent patient care (education, follow-up, support), and patient compliance with appropriate eating/exercise habits after surgery.

Our focus on these keys to success have translated over time to excellent, industry-leading weight loss surgery patient outcomes.*

gastric sleeve Orange County weight loss surgery patient - Yael

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve gastrectomy (also known as gastric sleeve, vertical sleeve gastrectomy, vsg) is the most popular weight loss surgery in the United States, accounting for 70-75% of all first-time weight loss operations.

Reasons for the popularity of the gastric sleeve operation include: 1) gastric sleeve is effective for weight loss, 2) gastric sleeve improves or resolves weight-related medical problems, and 3) gastric sleeve is less invasive and lower risk than gastric bypass surgery.

Published studies over more than 15 years prove the points above, but they also show that weight loss results and complication rates are surprisingly variable between between individual surgeons and programs.

Our gastric sleeve patient outcomes statistics rank among the best.* Our gastric sleeve weight loss results at 1-3 years are significantly better than the industry averages, and our gastric sleeve leak rate is 0%.*

gastric bypass Orange County weight loss surgery patient - Daniel

Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass surgery (i.e. Roux-en-y gastric bypass) is the 2nd most popular weight loss surgery in the United States, accounting for 20-25% of all first-time weight loss operations.

Gastric bypass surgery, like sleeve gastrectomy surgery, is highly effective for weight loss, and for the improvement or resolution of weight-related medical issues. Gastric bypass surgery is particularly effective for the treatment of acid reflux and diabetes.

Published studies over more than 40 years prove the points above, but the published studies also show that weight loss results and complication rates are not uniform between individual surgeons and programs.

Our gastric bypass patient outcomes statistics rank among the best.* Our gastric bypass weight loss results, both short-term and long-term, are better than the industry averages. Our gastric bypass leak rate is significantly lower than the industry average.*

The cost? Losing weight and gaining health is more attainable than you think.
