Weight Loss Procedures
Our program is dedicated to identifying those who need weight loss procedures and offering them options to lose the weight. Today, patients have a variety of procedures from which to choose, surgical options as well as non-surgical options, with each of these procedures achieving weight loss goals in a slightly different manner.
We also offer minimally invasive, robotic-assisted surgical procedures which may offer reduced pain and recovery time for those patients for whom robotic-assisted procedures are an option. Speak to one of our caregivers to learn if you may be a candidate.
Whether you decide on a gastric band, gastric sleeve, gastric bypass or the non-surgical gastric balloon, we will be here for you long term. We believe these procedures are just one component of your weight loss journey, with follow up care and support being vitally important to your success in achieving your weight loss goals.
Through our program, you can learn to make lifestyle changes in your diet and exercise that could positively impact you and your family for life.
Gastric Sleeve / Sleeve Gastrectomy
As one of the newer standalone stapled weight loss procedures, the gastric sleeve has quickly become the most popular bariatric surgery in the United States. It is a straightforward procedure that removes 70-80% of the existing stomach pouch in a vertical manner, using restriction alone to achieve long-term results similar to the gastric bypass.
The gastric sleeve does not alter the small intestine in any way.

Long considered the gold standard in bariatric surgery, the gastric bypass offers the greatest excess weight loss and obesity related disease resolution potential of any of the procedures we offer. The bypass works by both limiting the amount of food the patient can eat (restriction) and limiting the number of calories absorbed through the small intestine (malabsorption). It can be particularly useful for those suffering from uncontrolled type-2 diabetes or acid reflux.
Gastric Banding / Lap-Band
While the gastric band, also known as the Lap-Band®, is not as popular as it once was, some patients that feel more comfortable with an adjustable and reversible procedure may consider the band. The gastric band does not permanently alter the stomach, small intestine or any other part of the GI tract. While intraoperative complications are lower than those of stapled procedures, long-term complication rates are higher.
The latest weight loss device to be approved by the FDA, the gastric balloon uses an endoscopically-placed, saline-filled balloon to take up stomach space and increase fullness. This 6-month implant, paired with a one-year medical weight loss program, has proven results for those who may be concerned about surgery and for whom traditional diet and exercise has failed.
While bariatric surgery is generally very successful and represents one of the only long-term proven weight loss solutions for those suffering from morbid obesity, there are times when patients do not receive the benefit they or their surgeon expect. Some of these patients may benefit from revising their procedure. Learn more about the revision bariatric surgery.

As with any surgical procedure, bariatric surgery has its advantages and its risks. For many patients, especially those in poor health because of obesity, the benefits of the procedures may significantly outweigh the risks.
