Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery, also known as weight-loss surgery, includes a variety of procedures to help patients lose weight and improve their overall health.

Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass

Laparoscopic gastric bypass is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that reduces the size of a patient’s stomach with a bypass of the lower part of the stomach.

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical procedure in which the majority of the stomach is removed, and a smaller stomach is created with the remaining tube or “sleeve.”
