Bariatric Surgeon Upper East Side Manhattan, NYC
At Columbia Medical Center/Center for Obesity Surgery in Manhattan, you can find a Bariatric surgeon who knows how to help and treat a severely overweight patient. Though this surgery is a serious step, the risks associated with obesity are far worse and can lead to several conditions.
The two major types of Bariatric surgeries are: restrictive and combined restrictive and malabsorptive. LapBand is considered restrictive and is a surgical procedure that reduces the size of the stomach using staples and/or a band. Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is considered restrictive and malabsorptive and reduces the capacity of the stomach and bypasses the upper part of the small intestine. Both procedures result in a drastic life change, significantly reducing the quantity of food a person can ingest.
Those who are obese run the chance of encountering health risks such as:
- Heart Disease
- Infertility and complications during pregnancy
- Sleep Apnea
- Arthritis, and others
