Here are the procedures that Dr. Armenta performs:

Gastric bypass

This procedure is reserved for those with a high body mass index (or BMI). When gastric sleeve surgery is not a good fit for you, this will be the better option. However, the concept is still the same. Dr. Armenta will perform a bypass using a portion of your intestines while reducing the size of the stomach.

This will ensure that you eat fewer calories as you go about losing weight over a period of time. Dr. Armenta not only performs the traditional gastric bypass, but he also specializes in Roux-en-Y gastric surgery along with mini gastric bypass.

Gastric sleeve surgery

Dr. Armenta is also skilled to perform gastric sleeve surgery. This procedure removes part of the stomach, reducing the size. The patient will fill up quicker while eating less.

Best of all, it allows you to have total control over your caloric intake. That will be helpful in reducing the excess weight that you will keep off with the right lifestyle changes and healthy practices.

Revision surgery

Dr. Armenta is a specialist in bariatric surgery. So he knows what issues can be corrected, if needed. If you have had such surgery in the past (either in a hospital or clinic), he will perform a procedure that will help him identify the issue and correct it.

A specialist knows the common issues of past surgeries. And they’ll do their best to fix it so you can lose weight effectively.
