Bariatric Surgery Techniques
A variety of obesity surgery procedures that, fundamentally, involve isolating smaller portions of the stomach to limit food intake can be employed for weight loss: 
  • Laparoscopic Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass: This procedure involves a permanent re-routing of a small portion of the stomach directly to the small intestine.
  • Lap-Band®: A silicone band is used to reduce the capacity of the stomach.
  • Laparoscopic Vertical Banded Gastroplasty: This technique reduces the capacity of the upper stomach with staples and requires no surgical re-routing.
  • Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy: This method reduces the capacity of the stomach by 85 percent using vertical staples.
  • Single Incision Lap-Band® Surgery: The Lap-Band®is administered through the belly button.
Our surgeons also perform minimally invasive laparoscopic general surgery procedures:
  • Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal)
  • Laparoscopic Hernia Repair
  • Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication (Anti-Reflux Surgery)
  • Laparoscopic Small Bowel and Colon Surgery
  • Laparoscopic Appendectomy (appendix removal)

At the practice of Dr. Elmer Valin, MD, our team aims to secure long-term improvement for our patients who struggle with their weight. Patients seeking weight loss surgery in Hartford, CT and the surrounding areas need to remember, however, that this type of surgery is not a miracle cure. After undergoing obesity surgery, CT patients will still need to dedicate themselves to the hard work of maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regiment. Weight-loss surgery comes with many lifestyle changes, including changes to when and what you eat. However, adapting to these efforts will vastly improve your quality of life, and the surgery can also simultaneously improve or eliminate many health issues. If you are considering weight-loss surgery, we invite you to explore our site and learn more about these procedures, obesity and its associated conditions, and what post-operative life is like.
To learn more about our team of experienced and professional obesity surgeons, Connecticut residents should contact our New Haven practice serving Hartford, New London, and New York today.
