The Institute for Weight Loss at
Raritan Bay Medical Center

The Institute for Weight Loss at Raritan Bay Medical Center features a comprehensive, personalized approach to  overcoming obesity. Their multidisciplinary team, including experienced bariatric surgeons, guides patients through each step  of the weight loss journey - from choosing the best treatment options to nutrition education, lifestyle counseling and  ongoing support. The specialists will explain the benefits and risks of each bariatric procedure along with more conservative weight loss options. With the patient, they develop an individualized program that combines medical intervention with a  lifetime commitment to healthy eating, exercise and follow- up care.

We are all aware that obesity has become a major issue in our culture and lifestyle over the last couple of decades. For  our readers, Dr. Adeyeri, could you discuss the treatments and techniques available?

Most bariatric procedures are now performed with tiny incisions, resulting in less pain after surgery and faster  recoveries. Patients are generally back on their feet in a few days and may resume all activities within three weeks. The  most commonly performed procedures include:

Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass – The surgeon creates a small stomach pouch, bypasses a section of small intestines and  then attaches the lower part of the small intestines directly to the pouch. This technique restricts food intake while the  body absorbs fewer calories.

Adjustable Gastric Banding – A band is placed around the upper stomach to create a smaller pouch, restricting the  amount of food the stomach can hold without interfering with the digestive process. The band can be adjusted or  removed over time.

Gastric Sleeve – The surgeon removes about 85 percent of the stomach and shapes the remaining portion into a tube.  Food consumption is restricted while absorption is unaffected.



What are the most common issues/side effects that can occur while undergoing with the surgeries and treatments  above?

As with any surgery, side effects are not uncommon and may include: Nausea, dumping syndrome, nutritional  deficiencies, gallstones, bloating, diarrhea, excessive sweating, increased gas or dizziness. However, with proper follow- up and lifestyle modification, these can be minimized or eliminated.



Who would be a candidate for this type of treatment?

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measure used to index a person’s height and weight. BMI allows healthcare professionals  and patients to better understand health issues associated with a specific weight classification (classifications such as  obesity and morbid obesity) Anyone with a BMI of 40 or greater, or a BMI of 35 or greater plus a serious health  problem related to obesity (referred to as comorbidities) such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol.  However, each candidate for weight loss surgery is considered individually, and you should consult with a trained bariatric surgeon to discuss your risks and options.



What are the benefits of treatment you can share with our readers?

Our patients realize a number of positive results and life-changing benefits from achieving their desired weight loss.  Many are able to be much more active and return to the more physical activities they love, like golfing and fishing, and  they have the energy to spend quality time with their children or grandchildren. Others reduce their reliance and save  money on medications to control diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol. Still others sleep more soundly and  have less or greatly reduced pain in their joints. But, predominantly our patients feel more outgoing and no longer  hesitate to join in on social activities and regain the freedom to live their lives the way they wish.
