Bariatric Surgery is a proven option for weight loss in patients with severe obesity. Candidates for Bariatric Surgery must have tried other non-invasive methods of weight loss without success.
Here are some of our Surgical Options:
Roux En Y Gastric Bypass
RYGB surgery is considered the "gold standard" of weight loss surgery and is the most commonly performed bypass surgery in the United States today. RYGB surgery has become the weight loss surgery of choice for many patients due to its superior weight loss results with minimal, yet controllable, side-effects. RYGB surgery provides excellent long-term weight reduction along with the resolution or elimination of other chronic diseases that may be present.

Laparoscopic Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy
Also known as the "Sleeve,” Laparoscopic vertical Gastrectomy is a surgical procedure that restricts food intake, but does not affect food absorption by the intestines. The procedure is performed by removing a large portion of the stomach and forming the remaining stomach into a tubular shape (the sleeve).
This new sleeve is much smaller than the original stomach and acts to control how much and how quickly food can be eaten. The new, smaller stomach is similar in size to a banana and limits the amount of food you can eat by making you feel full after just a small amount of food.

Laparoscopic Revisional Bariatric Surgery
The outcome of bariatric surgery is generally quite good; however, not all surgeries produce the results that a patient originally anticipated. This experience is common with the more outdated operations, such as “stomach stapling” (VBG), which is no longer widely used by surgeons. For patients who have had bariatric surgery performed in the past and are unhappy with the results, revisional surgery may be an option.
Revisional bariatric surgery is a major operation which can be significantly more difficult than the original surgery. This type of surgery is performed to alter or repair a poorly designed earlier operation. The most common reasons for revisional surgery are medical complications, excessive weight gain since the initial operation and increase the rate of weight loss.

NON-SURGICAL WEIGHT LOSS OPTIONS
The Orbera Intragastric Balloon System
The Intragastric Balloon System is a weight loss aid for adults suffering from obesity, with a Body Mass Index (BMI) greater than 30/m2 and less than 40/m2, who have tried other weight loss programs, such as following supervised diet, exercise, and behavior modification programs, but were unable to lose weight and keep it off.
To receive the Orbera balloon the patient must be willing to follow a 12-month program. The program begins with the use of Orbera and a healthy diet and exercise program for 6 months, followed by 6 more months of a healthy diet and exercise program without Orbera in the Stomach.
