Bariatric Procedures Offered By Dr. Fenzel
Lap Band/ Relize Band
The adjustable gastric band is an inflatable device that gets placed on the upper part of your stomach to suppress hunger and food intake.
The sleeve gastrectomy is a very effective operation that works by restricting the amount of food you can eat. In addition, it decreases the level of circulating hunger hormones causing a significantly reduced appetite.
The gastric bypass restricts food intake, promotes food malabsorption, and causes a decreased appetite. The procedure significantly reduces the size of the stomach, causing the patient to feel full with only a small amount of food. The patient will not only eat significantly less but will also absorb less food, leading to significant weight loss.
This is an option for some gastric bypass patients who may have regained weight.
Band to Sleeve Conversion
The gastric band and port are removed and the gastric sleeve operation is performed. This is an option for band patients who struggle with chronic acid reflux, nausea or vomiting, or difficulty tolerating foods or failure to lose weight.
Bariatric surgery can be a life-saving solution for obese patients. Significantly improve your quality of life and finally lose the weight you desire by allowing Dr. Frenzel to administer the right bariatric treatment for you.
