Minimally Invasive Surgery
General Surgery Information
Dr. Pallati performs sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric banding (Lap Band®), and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgeries.
The Roux-en-Y procedure involves creating a stomach pouch out of a small portion of the stomach and attaching it directly to the small intestine, bypassing a large part of the stomach and duodenum. Not only is the stomach pouch too small to hold large amounts of food, but by skipping the duodenum, fat absorption is substantially reduced.
A Gastric Band procedure is a purely restrictive surgical procedure in which a band is placed around the upper most past of the stomach. This band divides the stomach into two portions, one small and one large portion. Because food is regulated, most patients feel full faster. Food digestion occurs through the normal digestive and absorption process. Attend a seminar to learn more about Bariatric Surgery.
