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.
Dr. Sashi Ganta is a pioneer in the field of bariatric surgery. In September 2008, Dr. Ganta, is believed to have performed the first trans-umbilical LAP-BAND® System weight loss surgery in Texas. This Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery procedure (SILS) for LAP-BAND® System surgery utilizes a single incision of less than 1 inch hidden in the navel, therefore leaving no visible scars. This new style of lap band surgery allows for a quicker recovery time and less pain to the patient.
