Minimally-Invasive Procedures

We offer three procedures that are minimally invasive, speeding up your recovery time and minimizing the risk of complications.

  • Gastric bypass – This is the most common weight-loss surgery and works by reducing the size of the stomach. It generally helps patients lose more weight than other procedures.
  • Sleeve gastrectomy – This irreversible procedure removes a large portion of the stomach. Patients will lose up to 55 percent of their excess weight.
  • Duodenal switch – This is also an irreversible procedure that removes a large portion of the stomach. Patients generally see fast and dramatic weight loss that will taper off over time as they reach optimal weight.

Comprehensive Support

Our goal is to help you improve your health and quality of life, by giving you the tools and the support to successfully lose and keep off the weight. That support begins with your first consultation and continues long after surgery, including:

  • Education about your surgical options
  • Diet counseling based on your nutritional needs
  • Exercise program customized for you
  • Psychological consultations, before and after your surgery
  • Regularly scheduled post-surgery follow-up visits
  • Monthly peer support groups

You’re invited to attend a free, no-obligation educational seminar where you’ll meet a bariatric surgeon, learn more about the types of surgery we offer, and have a chance to ask questions. Or take a free online seminar to get started.
