Treatment Options

Two types of weight loss surgery.

Our surgeons perform two types of weight loss surgery, and will work with you to determine which is best for you after testing and individual consultation. All of our procedures are minimally invasive. 

Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass involves the creation of a small stomach pouch using a stapling device. A section of the small intestine is attached directly to the pouch. This reduces the size of the stomach and bypasses a section of the small intestines. The result is often a dramatic loss of weight. The weight loss slows as the body approaches average weight for gender and size.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve gastrectomy involves the removal of a large section of the stomach, which leaves a banana-shaped section, or sleeve, that is sealed using staples. Creating a smaller stomach pouch limits the amount of food that can be eaten at one time. Your body will stop storing excess calories and start using fat as an energy source. This procedure does not alter normal digestion.

Patient Spotlight

Our team approach allows patients to gain control over their long-term health and well-being. From the moment the decision to begin is made, our board-certified physicians, Bariatric Surgery & Weight Management Nurse Practitioner and Metabolic and Bariatric Program Coordinator offer one-on-one guidance to keep you on the road to success.
