Bariatric Surgery

Weight loss surgery—or "bariatric surgery"—involves reducing the size of the patient's stomach. This means that a patient will feel full sooner, eat less, and with the help of other lifestyle changes, reduce their weight.

There are two types of bariatric surgical procedures: restrictive and malabsorptive. Our accomplished weight loss surgeons can help determine which type of procedure will best accommodate each patient.

Some of the surgical procedures we provide include:

  • Sleeve gastrectomy
  • Roux-en Y gastric bypass

Our bariatric surgery statistics are above the national average for success for our patients. More than just performing the surgery, our physicians and counselors can help patients identify and establish the lifestyle changes they need to make their weight loss surgery a success. In some cases, we also offer ongoing support group resources and nutritional counseling
