Often called the gold standard in bariatric surgery techniques, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is a well-established weight loss surgery procedure that involves permanently altering the path of the upper digestive system. Learn more about Roux-en-Y surgery.
The LAP-BAND® System is a popular alternative to the classic gastric bypass surgery, as it restricts the amount of food that can be consumed without making permanent structural changes to the digestive system. Find out how the LAP-BAND® System and other gastric banding options, such as the REALIZE™ Band, work.
The sleeve gastrectomy is a relatively new form of bariatric surgery offered at Minimally Invasive Bariatrics in Arlington, Dallas, and the Fort Worth area. It involves reducing the size of the stomach as well as the stomach's ability to produce certain appetite-inducing hormones. Read more about sleeve gastrectomy.
Undergoing any kind of surgery and not being satisfied with the results can be an extremely frustrating experience. In the case of bariatric surgery, the risk, recovery, and expectations involved only increase the level of frustration when the procedure is ineffective the first time around. At Minimally Invasive Bariatrics, we provide bariatric revision surgery for patients who have experienced inadequate weight loss. Procedures that may be revised include the VBG (vertical banded gastroplasty), the LAP-BAND® System and REALIZE™ Band surgeries, sleeve gastrectomy, and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. At Minimally Invasive Bariatrics, we use techniques that reduce the pain, risk, and recovery time involved in traditional bariatric surgery.
Other Advanced Surgical Procedures
In addition to offering bariatric surgery, Dr. Glenn Ihde performs minimally invasive colon surgery, reflux procedures, gallbladder surgery, hernia surgery, and more. If you are planning to have a general surgery procedure and want to know whether it can be conducted using minimally invasive techniques, contact Dr. Glenn Ihde and speak to his staff about your planned surgical procedure. These procedures are used to address a number of abdominal problems or conditions and can significantly improve a patient's time to recovery and his or her quality of life.
Making Patient Education a Priority
Dr. Glenn Ihde and the other bariatric surgery professionals who work in the Arlington, Dallas, and Fort Worth area at Minimally Invasive Bariatrics believe that thorough and accurate patient education is vital to the success of any weight loss procedure. That is why we have developed a comprehensive program to inform our patients about every aspect of the surgical experience and the new lifestyles they will be leading afterward. Our Bariatric University class makes use of audio-visual presentations and a detailed textbook developed by our own bariatric surgeon, Dr. Glenn Ihde.
