Surgery Solutions

Our most popular weight-loss surgeries in San Diego are gastric bypass and gastric sleeve. Regardless of the procedure, however, we perform most operations laparoscopically (minimally invasive) and under general anesthesia. The surgery usually takes less than an hour.

San Diego Weight-Loss Surgeries

At Olde Del Mar Surgical

Gastric Sleeve

The gastric sleeve, or sleeve gastrectomy, is minimally invasive and involves the removal of a portion of the stomach. Patients typically experience much less hunger after our surgeons remove part of the stomach that produces ghrelin, a hormone that makes people feel constantly hungry.

Gastric Bypass

The gastric bypass, or Roux-en-Y bypass, is minimally invasive and results in both a smaller stomach and a rerouted portion of the intestines. This is a good option for patients who need to lose a lot of weight; who carry their fat centrally; or who have metabolic illnesses, such as type 2 diabetes.

SADI Duodenal Switch

What is SADI? SADI-S, or single anastomosis duodeno–ileal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy, is another option available to our patients who are trying to lose weight. It’s one of the reasons why so many patients struggling with obesity and obesity-related health problems.

Revisional Weight-Loss Surgery

Surgeons may advise this course of action in order to correct or improve upon a previous weight-loss surgery that has not produced results. Revisional surgery is complex; it takes into account medical, surgical, emotional, and social factors that affect weight and overall health. We are one of only a very small number of practices that specialize in revisional surgery.

Offering Laparoscopic and Robotic General Surgery and Weight Loss Surgery Options

Olde Del Mar Surgical also provides additional services along with our other minimally invasive procedures. For example, our laparoscopic and robotic (or robot-assisted) surgery solutions offer best-in-class technological procedures to our patients. These procedures include:

A Focus on Patients, Results, and

For patients suffering from obesity and its associated health challenges, weight-loss surgery is an opportunity to improve both the quality and the quantity of life itself. We are experts in helping patients lose weight and overcome many of the health problems associated with obesity: diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and more.

Plus, our complication rate of 1% is well below the national rate of 5%. This positions Olde Del Mar Surgical as a far better choice for weight-loss surgery in San Diego than other clinics both near and far.

Among other benefits, minimally invasive surgery is a surgical procedure that allows for shorter hospital stays than traditional open surgery. Much more important than limiting food intake is the dramatic changes in patients’ metabolic and hunger hormones as a direct result of the surgery. This is truly the “secret sauce” behind surgery and the reason why the success of surgery cannot be replicated by simply “going on a diet.”

With our patient’s wellbeing at the forefront of every decision we make regarding their care, we offer a full spectrum of weight-loss surgeries in San Diego.

Frequently Asked

Answers to all your Del Mar Surgical questions and more. If you haven’t found what you’re looking for, please contact us at the link below.

What is weight loss revision surgery?

Revision surgery is a weight loss treatment that follows a previous bariatric surgery that did not lead to as much weight loss as the surgeon and patient hope for. Revision surgery can also be used when a patient regains significant weight after initially losing weight. Contact us if you are interested in discussing your options for revision surgery.

What is weight loss surgery?

Weight loss (bariatric) surgery helps you lose weight and lowers your risk of medical problems associated with obesity. Bariatric surgery contributes to weight loss in two main ways. The first is restriction, as the amount of food the stomach can hold is physically restricted, limiting the number of calories you can eat. The second way is malabsorption. Because some surgeries shorten or bypass part of the small intestine, it reduces the amount of calories and nutrients the body can absorb.

Which procedures are offered at Olde del Mar Surgical?

Our highly skilled and experienced surgical team, led by Dr. Sunil Bhoyrul, specializes in gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, revisional bariatric surgery, and Lap Bands.

Can weight loss surgery be performed laparoscopically?

Yes, at Olde del Mar Surgical we perform most of our weight loss procedures laparoscopically. This minimally-invasive technique results in fewer complications, less pain and less down time for most patients.

What is gastric bypass surgery?What is gastric bypass surgery?

Gastric bypass surgery involves creating a small pouch from the stomach and connecting the newly created pouch directly to the small intestine. After surgery, swallowed food will go into this small pouch and then directly into the small intestine, thereby bypassing most of your stomach and the first section of your small intestine.
