Procedures Offered by Dr. Osuna’s Surgical Team
Gastric Sleeve Surgery – Dr. Osuna performs gastric sleeve surgery laparoscopically. Gastric sleeve, otherwise known as vertical sleeve gastrectomy, is an extremely popular restrictive weight loss surgery. The gastric sleeve provides high expected weight loss (averaging roughly 60 to 70% of excess weight in two years), low complications, and low risks.
Gastric Bypass Surgery – Dr. Osuna performs gastric bypass surgery laparoscopically. Gastric bypass, also known as the RNY gastric bypass, is a weight loss surgery that combines restrictive and malabsorptive techniques. Gastric bypass surgery is a very popular surgery in the United States. Gastric bypass has very high expected weight loss (average of 61.6 percent of excess weight is lost) and has been shown to:
- Resolve 83.7 percent of type 2 diabetes Cases.
- Resolves 75.4 percent of hypertension cases are resolved, while 87.1 percent are resolved or improved.
Gastric Banding Surgery – Dr. Osuna performs gastric banding surgery laparoscopically. Gastric banding, also known as Lap-Band, is a purely restrictive weight loss surgery. Even though Dr. Osuna performs this surgery, he strongly advises against it. A recent study suggests that as much as 1/3 of lap-band procedures will be revised:
- Port-site complications, including pain, port displacement, and leak, arose in about 7% of patients. The mean explantation or major revision rate by 9 years was 33% (source).
