ALTER YOUR WEIGHT REGULATION SYSTEM WITH BARIATRIC SURGERY
Bariatric surgery offers a transformative solution to reset the body’s weight regulation system for long-term weight loss. Recent research has revealed that procedures such as gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, and biliopancreatic diversion have metabolic effects that facilitate a lower body fat level. Through modifications to the stomach and/or intestine, these surgeries impact hormonal signals, resulting in reduced appetite, increased satiety, boosted metabolism, and improved food preferences. Without bariatric surgery, managing weight and associated health conditions can be challenging for individuals with severe obesity.
POTENTIAL CONSEQUENCES OF OBESITY:
- Increased risk of cardiovascular diseases
- Type 2 diabetes
- Sleep apnea
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
- Joint problems and increased risk of arthritis
- Respiratory issues
- Fatty liver disease
- Increased risk of certain cancers
- Depression and mental health disorders
- Reduced fertility and reproductive complications

YOUR WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY OPTIONS IN NEW JERSEY
During your consultation with Dr. Prokurat, various factors are considered to determine the ideal approach for weight loss surgery. The consultation involves thoroughly evaluating your medical history, current health status, weight loss goals, and lifestyle factors. Dr. Prokurat may also conduct physical examinations and order additional tests. Based on this comprehensive assessment, Dr. Prokurat will provide personalized recommendations and discuss the most suitable options for weight loss surgery in New Jersey, such as gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, or duodenal switch.
GASTRIC BYPASS SURGERY
Gastric bypass surgery is a bariatric surgery that promotes weight loss by altering the digestive system. In this procedure, the surgeon creates a small pouch at the top of the stomach, which restricts food intake. This pouch is connected to the small intestine, bypassing a portion of the stomach and upper intestine. By reducing the stomach’s size and rerouting the digestive process, gastric bypass surgery limits the amount of food consumed, promotes a feeling of fullness, and can result in significant weight loss.
Sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical procedure that aids in weight loss by reducing the size of the stomach. During the surgery, a large portion of the stomach is removed, leaving behind a smaller, sleeve-shaped stomach. This smaller stomach restricts the amount of food that can be consumed, leading to a feeling of fullness with smaller portions. Additionally, the procedure may affect hunger hormones, resulting in reduced appetite. Sleeve gastrectomy promotes weight loss by restricting food intake and promoting a sense of satiety.
GASTRIC BAND CONVERSION
Gastric band conversion is a type of weight loss surgery in New Jersey that involves removing an existing gastric band and replacing it with a different weight loss procedure, typically a gastric sleeve or gastric bypass. This conversion is typically performed when the gastric band has not achieved the desired weight loss or has resulted in complications. The new procedure helps to further restrict food intake and promote weight loss by altering the size and function of the stomach. It provides a more effective and sustainable solution for long-term weight management.
DUODENAL SWITCH SURGERY
Duodenal switch surgery is a complex bariatric procedure that combines restrictive and malabsorptive components. It involves two main steps: First, a portion of the stomach is removed, creating a smaller stomach pouch. Then, the small intestine is rerouted, diverting food away from the duodenum (the initial part of the small intestine) and connecting it further down. This reduces the amount of nutrients absorbed by the body, resulting in both reduced calorie intake and decreased absorption. Duodenal switch surgery provides significant weight loss.
INCREASE SATIETY & DECREASE HUNGER
Weight loss surgery in New Jersey has been found to effectively increase satiety and decrease hunger, contributing to successful weight loss. These procedures impact hormonal signals that regulate appetite, particularly the hormone ghrelin, which stimulates hunger, and GLP-1, which promotes satiety. By altering the anatomy of the stomach and intestines, weight loss surgeries can reduce ghrelin production and increase GLP-1 levels, resulting in decreased appetite, increased feelings of fullness, and improved weight management.
ADVANTAGES OF BARIATRIC SURGERY:
- Significant and sustained weight loss
- Improvement or resolution of weight-related health conditions
- Increased energy levels
- Enhanced mobility and physical activity
- Improved self-esteem and body image
- Reduced risk of cardiovascular diseases
- Better control of blood sugar levels in diabetes
- Decreased joint pain and arthritis symptoms
- Lowered risk of certain cancers
- Improvement in fertility and reproductive health
- Positive impact on mental health and overall well-being.

To determine your suitability as a candidate, several factors are considered.
