Lap-Band Surgery at Marina Weight Loss
Lap band surgery is one of the most popular weight loss surgery procedures in Los Angeles and throughout the world. The lap band is placed around the upper part of the stomach during a short procedure at Marina Del Rey Hospital. The lap band creates a small upper stomach pouch leaving the larger stomach pouch below. Like an hourglass, the upper pouch fills up quickly and empties slowly so patients feel full sooner and longer. The lap band is the only adjustable weight loss surgery option available in Los Angeles allowing surgeons to custom tailor the amount and rate of weight loss for each patient. Read More...
Gastric Bypass at Marina Weight Loss
Gastric bypass surgery has been refined over time so that today it is both a safe and effective surgical weight loss option. Dr. Jeremy Korman, at Marina Del Rey Hospital uses the Roux-en-Y technique. First, a small stomach pouch is made by removing a portion of the stomach. Then, a portion of the small intestine is connected to the new pouch so that much of the intestinal track is "bypassed." With gastric bypass surgery, patients both eat less and absorb fewer calories. These changes allow for rapid and significant weight loss is patients who participate in our weight loss program. Read More...
Gastric Sleeve at Marina Weight Loss
The gastric sleeve procedure, also known as the sleeve gastrectomy or vertical gastric sleeve, is one of the newest weight loss procedures available to our patients. With gastric sleeve, a large portion of the stomach is removed but the intestines remain intact. The resulting pouch is shaped like a banana or tube that only holds a small amount of food. The result is effective long term weight loss. Many local patients in Los Angeles have had success with the sleeve gastrectomy at Marina Del Rey Hospital. Read More...
