Dr. Sashi Ganta has pioneered a new technique using a retraction suture placed on the diaphragm in a V shaped fashion to hold up the liver. This technique, labeled the “Ganta stitch” is quick, simple, reproducible and does not involve any extra cost for the patient because it doesn’t require any additional instrumentation. Dr. Ganta’s technique allows for a true single incision Lap Band surgery with less pain than other methods.

Bariatric surgery is a great option for patients who have been struggling to lose weight and keep it off. Types of bariatric surgery include gastric sleeve surgery, adjustable gastric band procedure and duodenal switch surgery. All of these procedures aim to change the anatomy of your gastrointestinal tract. We will work with you to find whichever option is best suited for you!
Gastric sleeve surgery, commonly referred to as vertical sleeve gastrectomy and sleeve gastrectomy, is a weight reductive surgery that is performed using a minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure. Gastric sleeve surgery is known to reduce weight loss through the reduction of one’s stomach size, which in turn reduces the production of ghrelin (AKA the “hunger hormone”). Dr. Ganta is known for his single incision, laparoscopic approach as it leaves patients with no visible scar, less pain and a fast and easy recovery.
The OBALON™ Balloon System is one of three gastric balloon systems that are FDA approved. Dr. Ganta performs this non-surgical and effective weight-loss method, which has been proven to help people KEEP their lost weight off. These balloons are packaged in swallowable capsules and are placed inside the body (with x-ray monitoring) a few weeks apart. The OBALON™ Balloon System is a non-permanent option that helps you get a jump start on your weight loss.

Dr. Sashi Ganta is fellowship-trained in laparoscopic surgery from Yale University. This specialized training at one of the world’s top medical schools is an example of Dr. Ganta’s commitment to continued education in advanced surgical techniques. Laparoscopic surgery for weight loss is one of the least invasive methods of bariatric surgery available – procedures are performed using smaller incisions, thereby helping patients obtain successful results with less visible scarring.
