Weight Loss Surgery Voorhees
Yves Manigat, M.D., FACS
Obesity is one of the biggest public health problems in the United States, and although exercise and diet can help some people reach a healthy weight, it is not the solution for everyone. For the severely obese, however, surgical treatment offers the best opportunity for long-term weight loss; improvement or elimination of many serious associated medical conditions such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, gastro-esophageal reflux, obstructive sleep apnea, bronchial asthma, osteoarthritis; and the reduction of the risk for certain cancers.
At Echelon Bariatric, we guide people through every step of their weight loss surgery journey. Located in Voorhees, serving Cherry Hill, Camden and the surrounding and extended South Jersey communities, our bariatric (weight loss) surgery practice offers advanced procedures, including laparoscopic gastric bypass, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, and laparoscopic gastric banding. Dr. Yves Manigat and the Echelon Bariatric team invite you to explore your bariatric surgery options by contacting our Voorhees office today.
Our Weight Loss Surgery Procedures
Echelon Bariatric offers a range of weight loss surgery choices to fit the needs of any patient, mostly among the alternatives associated with less discomfort and a shorter recovery time than traditional surgical methods. During your initial consultation with Dr. Manigat, your indications for surgery will be reviewed and your options for procedures will be discussed. He will determine whether you are a good candidate for bariatric surgery and help you decide which procedure is right for you.
Laparoscopic Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass
Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery is designed to help morbidly obese patients lose weight by reducing the amount of food that can be eaten during meals and limiting the amount of calories that are absorbed by the body. Dr. Manigat typically performs this weight loss surgery procedure through a laparoscopic approach to minimize patient discomfort after surgery and speed recovery. Dr. Manigat performs Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass surgery at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Camden.
Sleeve gastrectomy, also known as the gastric sleeve procedure, removes a portion of the stomach that secretes the hormone responsible for telling our brains when we are hungry. The procedure promotes weight loss by reducing the amount of food that can be eaten at any one time as well as suppressing appetite. Dr. Manigat performs sleeve gastrectomy surgery at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Camden. A recipient of the Health Grades Bariatric Surgery Excellence Award, Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital has been recognized as an Institute of Quality for Bariatric Surgery by Aetna, and as a Center of Excellence by the Surgical Review Corporation (SRC) subsidiary of the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).
The LAP-BAND® system is one of the least invasive and safest types of bariatric surgery. The procedure involves the placement of an adjustable band around the upper portion of the stomach to reduce the amount of food that can be eaten during meals. The LAP-BAND® system is also one of the only adjustable and fully reversible types of weight loss surgery available today.
Similar to the LAP-BAND® system, the REALIZE™ Personalized Banding Solution involves the placement of an adjustable band around the upper stomach to reduce its size and is also a fully adjustable and reversible procedure. REALIZE™ offers online clinical support with the REALIZE my SUCCESS™ system, which enables the doctor to monitor your progress and provide guidance when needed.
