Bariatric Surgery Program

Chapman Global Medical Center is a 114-bed facility that offers advanced medical and surgical technology, targeting neurosurgical spine care, orthopedics, pain management and bariatric services. For more than 40 years Chapman Global Medical Center has provided Orange County with innovative, state-of-the-art health care services.

Specialized Bariatric Surgery Procedures at Chapman Global Medical Center include:

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy – is a partial gastrectomy where the majority of the greater curvature of the stomach is removed and a tubular stomach is created. In 2016 this was the most commonly performed bariatric procedure in the world. This procedure is strictly a restrictive procedure.

Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass – is a surgical procedure that creates a small stomach pouch from the existing stomach and attaches it to the small intestine.

Lap Band® Surgery – is performed using a silicone band that is placed around the top section of the stomach. A small tube connects the band to a port placed subcutaneously in the abdomen.  Injecting saline into the subcutaneous port increases the degree of restriction around the stomach.

Chapman Global Medical Center has highly experienced Bariatric Surgeons and some of the lowest complication rates in the state. Using a minimally invasive approach greatly decreases the recovery time. Typically patients are able to return to work in 1 to 2 weeks.

Endoscopic Spine Surgery

Endoscopic Spine Surgery at Chapman Global Medical Center using TESSY® and iLLESSYS®

Our innovative minimally invasive endoscopic procedure can help patients with Herniated Disc, Spinal Stenosis and Facet Join Syndrome. The minimally invasive endoscopic procedure can help you get on your feet ASAP – providing care with the highest of quality and utmost compassion.

Endoscopic Spine Surgery using the TESSYS®/iLLESSYS® methods leave patients free from pain in three steps:

 

 

1.      Creating access to the area affected

2.      Completely removing tissue which is trapping the nerves

3.      Checking whether the nerve has been freed, removing instruments, and closing up the wound

The two procedures are slightly different in how they access the spine.  Endoscopic surgery offers one major benefit over other procedures; it can be performed under local anesthetic. A routine operation takes approximately 45 minutes. In each case your spine specialist will discuss the suitable anesthetic procedure that is best for you.

Endoscopic Spine Surgery helps:

Herniated Disc

Herniated disc typically starts with a weakened spinal disc. Your spinal discs act as cushions between vertebrae, and each is comprised of two main parts: the inner core (nucleus pulposus) and outer wall (annulus fibrosus). When a disc herniates, it means the inner core has leaked through a tear in the outer wall and into the spinal canal. You can have a herniated disc in any part of your spine. But most herniated discs affect the lower back (lumbar spine).

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis involves a narrowing of the spinal canal which is located inside the spine. This structure made from surrounding muscles and bone ligaments structures protects the soft spinal cord and the nerve fibers which stretch into the arms, torso, and legs. When the spinal canal is constricted, the nerves are squashed and this causes pain in arms and/or legs. As well as causing pain, the pressure on the nerves can also result in sensory disturbances (e.g. numbness, prickling) or a loss of strength in the arms and/or legs. The lumbar spine is the most frequently affected area of the spine.

Facet Joint Syndrome

Facet joint syndrome is pain at the joint between two vertebrae in your spine.  Facet joint syndrome is a common cause of back pain that can often radiate into the legs or arms. Facet joint syndrome is often linked with facet joint arthritis, which causes considerable pain in the back. People affected often complain of intense pain when straining or moving the spine.
