Cape Girardeau, MO - Bariatric Surgery Center Opens

View Comments (1)Print ArticleEmail Article

Saint Francis Medical Center announced that Weight Loss Solutions is now open.

This program offers multiple options in bariatric surgery for people who struggle with ongoing weight problems and are seriously considering a lasting lifestyle change.

Three weight-loss surgery options are offered:

  1. Sleeve Gastrectomy: In this procedure, a thin, vertical sleeve of stomach is created and the rest of the stomach is removed. This limits the amount of food that can be eaten and creates a feeling of fullness sooner.
  2. Gastric Banding: A reversible procedure, adjustable gastric banding reduces the stomach's capacity and restricts the amount of food it can consume, without cutting or stapling. Patients feel full faster and longer.
  3. Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass: In this procedure, a small portion of the stomach is sewn or stapled together to make a small pouch (roughly the size of an egg) to limit food intake. It also bypasses part of the intestines to reduce calorie absorption.
