Weight loss surgery procedures we perform
Weight loss can extend both the length and quality of your life. However, weight loss is not the only benefit of bariatric surgery. It can also resolve sleep apnea, hypertension, Type 2 diabetes, menstrual dysfunction and venous stasis ulcers.
Our surgeons offer:
A sleeve gastrectomy is an effective, safe weight loss operation. It removes the part of the stomach where a specific hormone is produced that makes you feel hungry. This helps prevent patients from feeling hungry all the time.
Performed via five tiny incisions, a sleeve gastrectomy allows permanent reduction in hunger and weight without implants or long-term nutritional problems.
Gastric bypass surgery changes how the stomach and small intestine handle the food you eat. The stomach is divided into a small upper pouch and a much larger, lower "remnant" pouch. During this minimally invasive procedure, the small intestine is rearranged to connect to both.
When combined with a comprehensive treatment plan, gastric bypass can result in long-term weight loss.
These procedures have a low rate of complications and may be done robotically in some cases, resulting in faster recovery times, smaller incisions and less pain.
