More than half of the people in the U.S. are overweight or obese and each year this number rises. Obesity is a chronic condition that requires management for life.

Bariatric procedures cause weight loss by restricting the amount of food the stomach can hold, causing malabsorption of nutrients, or by a combination of both gastric restriction and malabsorption. All of our surgical procedures are performed in a minimally invasive approach (laparoscopic surgery) that allows the patient to recover faster than in an open surgery.

The most common bariatric procedures are:

  • Gastric Sleeve
  • Adjustable Lap-band
  • Mini-Gastric Bypass (MGBP)
  • Gastric Bypass (Roux-en-Y)
  • Intragastric Balloon
