Does Your Insurance Cover Weight Loss Surgery?

Unlike traditional or open surgeries, minimally invasive surgeries involve smaller and lesser incisions, resulting in less scarring, quicker recovery times, and fewer complications. There are mainly two types of minimally invasive surgical procedures – Laparoscopy and Robotic Surgery. Laparoscopy is performed using small tubes, and tiny cameras and surgical instruments being inserted into one or more small incisions. Robotic surgery provides a magnified, 3D view of the surgical site and helps our surgeons operate with precision, flexibility and control. The surgeons at DFW Bariatrics and General Surgery are specialized in all types of laparoscopic surgery including gallbladder, hernias, and colorectal and anti reflux surgery.

The placement of Orbera Gastric Balloon into the stomach is a simple, non-surgical outpatient procedure. First, a diagnostic test is done to make sure it is safe to perform the procedure. Then the deflated gastric balloon is inserted through the esophagus and into the stomach. Once it is in position, the balloon is inflated with saline and a dye, to maintain the required size. The procedure takes about 15 minutes to complete. The balloon is temporarily left in the stomach for about 6 months.

After the procedure, you may experience some cramps and nausea, as your stomach adjusts. Your throat may feel a little sore. You’ll follow a liquid or soft diet for a few weeks and followed by 6 months of a supervised diet plan. Our team will continue working closely with you during these 6 months.

As with any other procedure, Gastric balloon procedure involves certain risks and complications:

  • Esophageal, gastric ulcers or perforation.
  • Deflation of the balloon which can lead to blockage.
  •  Rupture of balloon dye (if used), which will be released in the urine.

Cholecystectomy

Cholecystectomy, a minimally invasive GI surgery, is a laparoscopic procedure to remove a gallbladder that is inflamed, blocked, or filled with gallstones. The laparoscope is put into the body through a keyhole-size cut made just below the navel. To learn more about the procedure, and pre and postoperative care, click here.

Colorectal Surgery

Colorectal surgery treats colon and rectum related health conditions including appendicitis, colon cancer, rectal prolapse, and diverticulitis.
