Procedures we offer

Weight loss surgery options are all unique, and different procedures may be right for different patients. As a comprehensive provider of bariatric weight loss solutions, we do everything possible to match the right surgical process to each patient based on weight, age, comorbidities and desirable results.
 
All weight loss surgery procedures have certain risks, complications and benefits. The ultimate result from bariatric surgery depends on a patient's knowledge base and commitment to their diet, exercise and lifestyle modification program. 
 
In addition to traditional medical management, as well as transplant support and opioid sparing programs, we offer the following procedures to assist obese patients with weight loss:
 
  • Adjustable Gastric Band
  • Gastric balloon
  • Gastric bypass
  • Revision surgery
  • Sleeve gastrectomy
 
We also specialize in general surgical issues including hernias, esophageal reflux, diverticulitis, colon cancer, and diseases of the gallbladder, stomach, spleen, pancreas, esophagus, and small intestine.
