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
