Surgery | Male | 38 years old

I'm a gastrointestinal surgeon with expertise in bariatric surgery, advanced laparoscopy, hernia repair. For bariatric surgery, the two most common - the gastric bypass and the sleeve gastrectomy - both of those operations are performed laparoscopically here at Rush. People will lose somewhere around 60 to 70 percent of their excess weight with the sleeve gastrectomy or 80 percent or so of their excess weight with the gastric bypass - and that's in somewhere around 12 to 18 months when the weight loss levels out. But weight loss isn't the only thing that bariatric surgery's about, and I think it's important every time the weight loss concept comes up in relation to bariatric surgery, it's very important to also immediately begin talking about the impact of bariatric surgery on the associated medical conditions - for example, diabetes. A lot of the benefits that we see, in terms of the remission or improvement in diabetes, a lot of it begins to take some place sometimes even before patients have lost any significant amount of weight. I love being able to talk to patients who say, I was taking 20 units of insulin and now I only take 10, or now I'm completely off insulin - and being able to walk with them through that process - and by the way I lost 120 pounds while doing that - and there's nothing else like it.Read more
