Bariatric surgery is a major life decision, and if the gastric band or gastric sleeve isn't the most suitable surgical procedure, Dr Silverman offers a variety of surgical options that provide optimal results.
Sleeve gastrectomy: This option is a permanent removal of the majority of the stomach. While it's a highly effective method of achieving significant weight loss in a short period, it's an invasive procedure and the decision to go ahead shouldn't be taken lightly.
Intra-gastric balloon: This is a non-invasive procedure that can be reversed very easily. A balloon is inserted through the mouth which limits food intake and helps to decrease hunger pangs.
Dr Silverman will assess all options for weight-loss surgery thoroughly and decide which will achieve the most effective outcomes when integrated with your lifestyle and individual situation to ensure the most effective outcomes from treatment.
