Bariatrics is healthcare surrounding the causes, prevention, and treatment of obesity. This includes research, genetics, nutrition, diet, psychology, surgical procedures, recovery, and lifestyle alignment.
Eastside Bariatric has developed a complete, comprehensive bariatric program for those that are looking to improve their lives through weight loss. Our program was developed to help patients become successful in their weight loss goals and their ability to assimilate to their new healthier lifestyle. Every patient is different and the program is customized to fit your specific body and situation but here are some general guidelines of what you can expect and what is available in program:
Bariatric Surgical Procedures
There are several surgical options available for bariatric patients. After your consultation and depending on your progress, Dr. Sanni will recommend the best option for you, your body, and your lifestyle.
The gastric balloon insertion process is a non-invasive procedure that takes only 20-30 minutes to complete. This outpatient procedure allows many patients to go home on the same day. For more information on the gastric balloon, visit our partner ReShape by clicking here.
Lose weight in only 2 years using the gastric sleeve method. This method does not redirect your digestive track but significantly reduces feelings of hunger, which helps you to lose weight.
If you are suffering from severe obesity and brittle diabetes, Dr. Sanni will likely recommend the Gastric Bypass procedure. This procedure transforms the way your stomach and small intestines digest your food.
Adjustable Gastric Banding (Lap Band)
Limiting the amount of food you eat through banding without stapling or cutting the stomach. With proper diet and exercise, you should feel more full and lose weight within the first year.
