Weight loss surgery, together with behavior and lifestyle changes, is a powerful tool for life changing weight loss. Bariatric surgery makes losing weight more manageable because you feel full on smaller portions and are often less hungry. Our patients say they love losing weight without feeling like they are on a “diet.”
Today, thanks to technological and research advances, we offer several safe and effective procedures for surgical weight loss. Our team will work with you to determine if you qualify as a candidate for surgery and if so, what type of procedure will be the safest and most effective for you.
Minimally invasive, laparoscopic surgery uses tiny, ½-inch incisions in the abdomen. This is not a reversible surgery.
Reduces the size of the stomach by about 80%.
The part of the stomach where the hunger hormone is made is removed so you feel full on much smaller amounts of food.
Performed laparoscopically, this is the only reversible and adjustable weight loss surgery available.
Surgery involves placing a silicone band around your stomach to divide it into two smaller sections.
The area where food enters the stomach is smaller, so you feel less hungry.
A minimally invasive procedure, performed through tiny incisions. The procedure is not adjustable or reversible.
Combines two techniques, restrictive (limiting food intake capacity) and malabsorptive (preventing food absorption in the intestines).
Initial weight loss can be faster, although long-term results are similar to other processes.
