In this blog, we’ll discuss B+A’s options for surgical weight loss in Cedar Park and how our team is committed to helping you become your best self.

Options for Surgical Weight Loss in Cedar Park

At B+A Surgeons, we perform most of our surgeries laparoscopically or with the robotic da Vinci Surgical System. These techniques allow us to reduce the risk of surgical complications, speed up recovery time, and reduce pain associated with the procedures.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Our gastric sleeve procedure (sleeve gastronomy) reduces stomach size by approximately 75%. Because your stomach is smaller, it will hold less food, making it easier to eat smaller meals. This procedure leaves your intestines intact (so you can still absorb essential nutrients).

Gastric Bypass

The gastric bypass (Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery) involves making your stomach smaller and bypassing part of the small intestine. So, in addition to making it easier to eat smaller amounts of food, you will also absorb fewer calories.

To ensure you stay healthy after your surgery, you’ll need to take a regular supplement to make up for the nutrients you may no longer naturally absorb, and you’ll have to stop taking NSAIDs to avoid developing ulcers.

Modified Duodenal Switch

Our modified duodenal switch (also called the laparoscopic single anastomosis duodenal-ileal bypass with sleeve, SADI-S) can help patients with severe obesity lose significant weight. This surgery also has two parts (stomach reduction and bypass) and will require you to take a nutritional supplement post-surgery. It combines a sleeve and a bypass but allows the patient to take NSAIDS if needed.

Lap Band Surgery Removal

B+A Surgeons does not provide lap band surgeries because research shows they aren’t good options for sustainable weight loss. However, we can remove your band and replace it with another, more effective option.
