Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve gastrectomy is now the most common operation performed for obesity in Australia. Basically, it is a simple reduction in the volume of the stomach which induces satiety (hunger satisfaction) with greatly reduced food volume. We have performed over 1500 Sleeve gastrectomy procedures since 2006.

Laparoscopic (Roux-en-Y) Gastric Bypass

Laparoscopic (keyhole) gastric bypass is considered the “gold standard” obesity operation by the majority of the world’s foremost bariatric (weight loss) surgeons. At LapSurgery we have been performing this procedure since 2009. It is particularly effective for patients with Type 2 diabetes.

Revisional Surgery

If you have already had an operation for weight control such as a gastric band and it isn’t working as you had hoped, we have an extensive experience in revisional surgery and we may be able to help.
We offer our expertise both to our own patients and also to those who have had operations with other surgeons.

Intragastric Balloon

The intragastric balloon is designed to be inserted into the stomach and inflated to a volume which will restrict the amount you can eat and reduce hunger. This is a temporary procedure which can cause modest weight loss.

LapBand

At LapSurgery Australia we have performed over 4,000 laparoscopic gastric banding operations. In common with Surgeons in Australia and overseas we usually do not offer this as a first option. We remain happy to discuss this option with you.

SADI

The Single Anastomosis Duodeno–Ileal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy (SADI) is a newer procedure which combines a sleeve gastrectomy and a bypass of the small intestine from the duodenum (the intestine just beyond the stomach) leaving between 2.5 and 3metres of small bowel to absorb food. It is a powerful weight loss procedure, based on an older procedure that has been modified to reduce the risk of complications from malnutrition.

Mini Gastric Bypass

The ‘Mini Gastric Bypass’ or, more accurately, the One Anastomosis Gastric Bypass is a simplified version of the Standard Roux-en-Y Gastric bypass that has become popular in recent years due to its reduction in technical difficulty and operating time. In this surgery, a new, small stomach is made which is joined to the small intestine bypassing 1.5 to 2 metres of small intestine without dividing the bowel.
