A weight loss surgeon, or bariatric surgeon, is a doctor who specializes in procedures that control how your stomach and/or digestive tract handle food. There are different surgery options designed to meet your individual needs and give you the best chance of success. To date, Dr. Moeinolmolki has performed over 2,000 minimally-invasive weight loss surgeries.
The goal behind Dr. Moeinolmolki’s work as a bariatric surgeon is to control how your body takes in and stores food so you can lose weight. Bariatric surgery involves either restricting the amount of food you can take in, limiting the absorption of foods in your digestive tract (called “malabsorption”), or both.
For the best results, Dr. Moeinolmolki offers the following weight loss surgeries:
During this procedure, Dr. Moeinolmolki ties off a small portion of your stomach and then connects your small intestine directly to this area, bypassing the bulk of your stomach. Your stomach will only hold a fraction of what it used to before this surgery.
During a sleeve gastrectomy, Dr. Moeinolmolki removes approximately 80% of your stomach, reducing your stomach’s volume considerably. You will get full quickly which will help you control your calorie intake significantly.
Adjustable gastric banding involves a band being placed around your stomach to restrict the amount of food that can pass through your digestive tract. The gastric lap band lets Dr. Moeinolmolki adjust the band as needed, allowing more or less food through.
A gastric balloon is a small silicon pouch that Dr. Moeinolmolki inserts into your stomach and inflates, reducing the space available for food and making you feel full. This procedure is one of the least invasive options — Dr. Moeinolmolki performs this procedure on an outpatient basis. The balloon can be removed at any time.
While the bariatric surgeries that Dr. Moeinolmolki offers are all beneficial, there is still a small risk of infection or bleeding at the incision site. Dr. Moeinolmolki monitors you closely after each procedure to ensure prompt attention to any problem.
Each procedure requires your full commitment to the weight loss process, which makes it important to follow postoperative instructions to the letter.
