Dr. DeBarros is devoted to a comprehensive surgical weight loss management program that emphasizes caring as part of the journey to restored health at Banner Estrella Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona.

Dr. DeBarros:
Well, currently we perform gastric bypass and LAP-BAND®. That is the most common bariatric procedure that’s performed. Gastric sleeve is also a procedure that we also perform. However, that in our practice, my practice has been not really become popular yet in terms of that.

Gastric sleeve patients, I personally use the gastric sleeve for patients who have done well with a LAP-BAND® or have had some type of complicating event where they have done well with a LAP-BAND®, they absolutely do not want a gastric bypass, but this would be sort of a bridge to give them that same weight loss they had with the band.

And once again, with a gastric sleeve, you really have not burned any bridges. It is not considered irreversible. However, the complexity of the operation is a lot less.
