Taking control of your weight with bariatric surgery can help prevent all of these health risks and a host of additional afflictions, such as severe heartburn, incontinence, venous problems of the legs, lower back and joint pain, and shortness of breath.
Our philosophy is providing surgical excellence by combining cutting edge technology and individualized patient care. A few of the most commonly performed procedures include laparoscopic gastric banding, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, laparoscopic gallbladder surgery, and laparoscopic hernia repair.
Gastric Sleeve Surgery. Sleeve gastrectomies — better known as “Gastric Sleeve Surgeries” — are the most common type of bariatric weight loss procedures and now make up more than 60% of all such procedures in the United States. Dr. Sergey Terushkin, a renowned leader in the bariatric surgery field, performs gastric sleeve procedures regularly using a minimally invasive, laparoscopic technique.
What is a Gastric Sleeve Surgery? During a gastric sleeve surgery, Dr. Terushkin will make five keyhole-sized incisions to remove roughly 80% of the left side the stomach, leaving the stomach roughly the size and shape of a banana. In addition to this reducing the body’s capacity for intake and decreasing appetite, the segment of the stomach which is removed also houses hormone producing cells, thereby decreasing cravings and hunger.

Sleeve Gastrectomy. Sleeve Gastronomy is also known as gastric sleeve surgery, or “sleeve”, procedure. During this procedure, the left side of the stomach is removed, leaving a stomach roughly the size and shape of a banana. Through 5 key-hole sized incisions, roughly 80% of the stomach is removed making patients feel full quicker and thus giving them better portion control. The segment of the stomach which is removed also houses hormone producing cells (Ghrelin- also known as a hunger hormone) which trigger hunger and therefore, once that portion of stomach is removed, hunger levels/cravings also tend to diminish. Sleeve gastrectomy also markedly improves most obesity-related comorbidities such as diabetes, sleep apnea, hypertension and hyperlipidemia.
While there are a number of non surgical diet plans available, bariatric surgery, whether it’s gastric bypass, lap band surgery or sleeve gastrectomy, produces the best results for achieving long-term success. Bariatric Surgery Can Effectively Treat Type 2 Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, and Sleep Apnea. Bariatric surgery has been documented as reducing premature death rates and improving, if not curing, the co-morbidities (other related illnesses) associated with being obese. We’ve also seen improvement with arthritis general pain, mobility, asthma, infertility, and lymphedema.
