What is bariatric surgery?

Bariatric surgery makes changes to the digestive system to help individuals lose weight when diet and exercise haven't worked or when an individual's weight contributes to serious health problems. Individuals need to meet certain medical guidelines to qualify for weight-loss surgery. The surgical weight loss procedures listed below are performed using advanced, minimally invasive surgical techniques (laparscopic surgery).  These procedures can help individuals lose weight and reduce the risk of potentially life-threatening weight-related health problems.

Services Offered

  • roux-en-Y gastric bypass
  • lap gastric banding
  • sleeve gastrectomy
