Safe and Effective Weight Loss Solutions

During your fight against obesity, you may have encountered several medicinefields.

Our team of expert surgeons inALO Bariatrics have helped more than 7,000 patients reclaim their health and theyare certified to perform all kinds of bariatric procedures, including the DuodenalSwitch and the LAP-BAND. Additionally, we also offer the two most popular optionsin the field: the Gastric Sleeve and the Gastric Bypass. These two surgeries havethe same goal, a permanent and safe weight loss, but differ in the methods used.

On the one hand, gastric sleeve is a restrictive bariatric surgery that involves thepermanent removal of a considerable part, up to 80%, of the stomach. This meansthat the weight loss comes from a restricted amount of food intake. The gastricsleeve is one of the safest weight loss surgeries, and our team of surgeonsperform the procedure laparoscopically, reducing the risk of bleeding, infections,and post-surgery scarring. On the other hand, gastric bypass surgery makes use ofminimally invasive techniques to reduce the stomach’s capacity and reroutes thesmall intestine. This change limits the appetite and decreases the number ofcalories the body can absorb, resulting in a sustained and healthy weight loss.Gastric bypass can also address obesity comorbidities such as diabetes.

Neither option is better than the other, they both offer safe and effective weight lossto people who have struggled with obesity for a long time.
