Weight Loss

Sleeve Gastrectomy

The Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy, or Sleeve Gastrectomy, is a widely adopted weight loss procedure. This transformative surgery involves the removal of about 80% of the stomach, resulting in a slender tube shaped stomach resembling a banana. Following a Sleeve Gastrectomy procedure, a long-term weight loss of around 60-65% can be achieved.The surgery consists of small robotically made incisions. Patients can expect to spend a single night at the hospital allowing them to begin their journey towards a healthier lifestyle the next day.

Gastric Bypass

A Gastric Bypass surgery combines a restrictive component like the Sleeve Gastrectomy with an additional malabsorption component to increase weight loss. Following a Bypass, a long term body weight loss of about 65-70% is expected. For patients with metabolic syndromes and Diabetes Mellitus Type 2 this is an excellent choice. The procedure is performed using small robotically made incisions. A patient usually spends one night in the hospital before going home in the morning to begin their journey towards a healthier lifestyle.


The renowned procedure, Single Anastomosis Duodenal Switch (SADS) is known for its ability to achieve a weight loss of 70-80% of excess body weight. SADS, like the Gastric Bypass, incorporates both a restrictive and malabsorption component to aid in weight reduction.

However, SADS is set apart by its unique advantage: patients who undergo this procedure experience no increased risk of marginal ulcers or internal hernias. This procedure presents all the weight loss benefits of the Gastric Bypass without any undesirable side effects. Utilizing state-of-the-art robotic techniques, the surgery consists of minimally invasive small incisions. Patients can expect to spend one night at the hospital and are discharged the following morning.


For patients who have already undergone Bariatric Surgery but either encountered complications or did not achieve substantial weight loss, specialized surgical procedures can be designed. Dr. Zhu ensures a personalized approach meeting with the patient in order to gain a
comprehensive understanding of their previous surgical experiences. Together, Dr. Zhu and the patient will collaborate to develop a tailored plan that aligns with their goals and pave the way for their desired results.
