I am now considering the sleeve instead of the band. I am worried about all the f/u required with the band, & was wondering if anyone knows of any surgeons who do this surgery in the US or Mexico?

My surgeon does sleeves. There is also another surgeon on the website that does them in the U.S. alighterme .com

well MISTY...thanks for the info....but NOW....does anyone who is NOT A PATIENT COORDINATOR have info on a sleeve dr.?

I don't like being given the info by someone posing as a patient but is pushing their doctor in every post on this board. Is your name Sandy by chance?

Huh? You asked and I answered. Not all lapband doctors do sleeves. Mine does so I answered you. Use another surgeon if you want. It doesn't make any difference to me!

I asked about the sleeve before I got my band and was told that it was a new name for an old procedure. The reason for the new name is that the procedure wasn't as good as the band and wasn't too popular. Might be worth looking into.

Whoever told you that was mistaken. I think they are confusing Vertical Sleeve Gastroplasty with the older procedure called Vertical Banded Gastroplasty. They are two distinctly different procedures (the older one included a band and stapling if I recall correctly, and according to my doctor it isn't done anymore or almost never done anymore). Vertical Sleeve Gastroplasty does not involve a band of any sort. If you would like more detailed information go to Obesityhelp.com where the procedures are described in detail with pictures.:smile:

Moved to the lounge per this not being a band-related topic, but do please continue to enjoy your dialogue. :smile:

Dr. Huacuz? Glad your doing ok but I have read TOOOOO many bad stories about this doctor including one on VSGFAQ.com from AdrieneC who almost died from a leak from him that he didn't properly treat.

I call Dr. Huacuz, The Butcher of Tiajuana. I wouldn't let him operate on my dog. If I had a dog.

There are plenty of good doctors in Mexico, why go to one with a poor reputations when there is another down the street who has a great reputation?

Hello there!

I was sleeved by Dr. Aceves in Mexicali. I can't say anything but great things about him. His record is absolutly flawless. Seriously, I tried to find SOMETHING bad about him and I just couldn't. He is sweet, caring and completely professional. He treats you like a person and not a patient. I have lost 19lbs so far and I am post op day 8. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. Good luck with whoever you choose

Thanks!

ThinSeeker

My doctor, Owens, does the Sleeve in California and in Mexico! I almost chose the Sleeve because i could tell that he thinks i'd lose more weight then the lap band (which I did). It costs more than Lap band though and i am a cash pay. I'm happy i did the lap band, but i've heard good things about the Sleeve too.

I'm curious why he thinks you'd lose more weight with a band? All the research I've seen shows that the sleeve has much better weight loss numbers. What size boughie does he use?

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
