Here in MAH Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) includes a variety of procedures performed on patients who have obesity. Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through removal of a portion of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy or biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch) or by resecting and re-routing the small intestine to a small stomach pouch by our Bariatric Surgeons.
Classification of Surgical Procedures:
Procedures can be grouped in three main categories: blocking, restricting, and mixed.  Standard of care in the United States and most of the industrialized world in 2009 is for laparoscopic as opposed to open procedures. Future trends are attempting to achieve similar or better results via endoscopic procedures. MAH delivers care, precision and knowledge for our patient’s safety, well-being and trust”.
