There are three major weight loss surgeries available today: the Gastric Sleeve, the Lap-Band, and the Gastric Bypass.
Iowa Weight Loss Specialists performs the Gastric Sleeve on our patients, because we believe the advantages of the surgery are greater than any of the other options and the downsides are far less. The risk of major post-operative complications with the Gastric Sleeve are less than any other weight loss surgery.
