Sleeve Gastrectomy

Considering a Sleeve Gastrectomy?

A Sleeve Gastrectomy offers a surgical treatment option for obesity. Excess weight is a complicated issue, and weight loss is not always as simple as many people think. While aggressive diets and exercise methods may initially bring results, this weight loss is often temporary and we more often than not see unwanted excess weight creep back on.

Bariatric and metabolic surgery offers a permanent tool to help you lose excess weight by altering the way your body processes food and responds. By removing the stretchy, unnecessary outer portion of the stomach organ, we leave less space to be filled with food. This method also decreases the levels of the “hunger hormone” we find in the stomach. Bariatric surgery, combined with a commitment to lifestyle changes, has a proven record of long term, sustained weight loss.

Insurance

Does my insurance cover
weight loss surgery?

For many patients, health insurance provides at least some coverage. Policies use a set of qualifications to determine if coverage is appropriate and these terms vary from policy to policy. Our team is familiar with this process and will help you to navigate the coverage guidelines for your specific policy and what your financial responsibility may be based on factors like a policy deductible, out-of-pocket maximum, or copay structure.

Am I a good candidate for a Sleeve Gastrectomy?

The sleeve gastrectomy is an ideal choice for patients who are committed to changing their lives and losing weight for good. Successful weight loss requires hard work, even with bariatric surgery. Generally, patients with a BMI, or body mass index, of 30 or greater can benefit from the sleeve procedure. For some patients, a gastric bypass may be more appropriate, especially if you have more weight to lose or you suffer with chronic reflux.
