  • Our surgeons are skilled in several different weight loss surgery procedures. This allows them to help you chose the surgery that is right for you. We do not use a one size fits all method. Meet with one of our surgeons and discuss which procedure is the right fit for you.

    Lap Band

    Lap-band surgery is considered less invasive and risky than some other types of weight loss surgeries. In fact, it can be reversed, if desired, allowing the patient’s stomach to go back to its original size. Additionally, this type of surgery doesn’t impair a person’s absorption of nutrition. As such, vitamin deficiencies that may develop after other types of weight loss surgeries are rare with lap-band procedures.

    Gastric Bypass

    Gastric bypass surgery makes the stomach smaller and causes food to bypass part of the small intestine. You will feel full more quickly than when your stomach was its original size. This reduces the amount of food you can eat at one time. Bypassing part of the intestine reduces how much food and nutrients are absorbed. This leads to weight loss.

    Sleeve Gastrectomy

    Sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical weight-loss procedure in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach, following the major curve. The open edges are then attached together (often with surgical staples) to form a sleeve or tube with a banana shape. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach. The procedure is performed laparoscopically and is not reversible.

    Duodenal Switch

    Duodenal switch, one of the most complicated weight loss surgeries, is also known as vertical gastrectomy with duodenal switch, biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch, DS or BPD-DS. Duodenal switch packs a one-two punch against obesity. It does so by combining two surgical techniques: restrictive and malabsorptive.

    Revision Surgery

    Of the reasons to have revision bariatric surgery, inadequate weight loss and/or weight regain is the number one reason patients seek revision bariatric surgery. Not every patient is the “average” patient and therefore may not lose weight as a result of any one type of bariatric surgery the way an average patient would. Where one type of bariatric surgery meets the needs a particular patient, the same surgery may not meet the needs of another patient; of course there are reasons for this.
