Surgical Options

Overview

Saint Clare’s Dover Hospital offers surgical solutions to address significant weight loss challenges and helping patients to establish and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Most weight loss surgeries are performed laparoscopically, commonly known as the minimally invasive approach. This technique lends itself to a less invasive procedure compared to conventional, open surgery.

The procedures are performed through multiple small incisions, involving the use of thin instruments and a camera. Potential benefits of this technique include fewer complications, less pain, less time in the hospital, and reduced recovery time overall.

Our Approach

Minimally invasive procedures include:

  • Gastric Band: Intended to slow consumption of food and reduce the amount of food that is consumed.
  • Gastric Bypass: Restricts the amount of food, while decreasing the absorption of calories from food that is consumed.
  • Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy: Restricts the amount of food by removing 85% or more of the stomach without bypassing the intestines.
