What is bariatric surgery?

One of the services we offer and perform most frequently is bariatric surgery, which is more commonly known as weight-loss surgery. It could be an effective treatment option for you if you have been diagnosed with morbid obesity and have not had success losing weight through other means.

There is more than one kind of weight loss surgery. We most often conduct biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPD/DS), sleeve gastrectomy, and gastric bypass procedures, and will work with you and your doctor to find the best option for you and your circumstances.

Nonsurgical weight loss options

At HCA Florida Jacksonville Surgical Specialists, we work hard to ensure you feel supported and heard throughout your weight loss journey. In addition to our surgical approaches to weight loss, we also offer nonsurgical treatments to support you towards a healthier and happier lifestyle.

How do I lose weight without surgery?

Our dedicated nutrition experts work with you to create an individualized treatment plan that fits your needs and goals. Our first approach will be to conduct a thorough assessment of your overall health and establish a personalized strategy where specific goals are outlined.

After our initial assessment, our registered dietician nutritionist will work with you to provide nutritional counseling support, meal plans and additional guidance to help you along your weight loss journey. In some cases, we may offer medication assistance to help you lose weight. Contact our front desk to learn more.

Breast surgery

We offer a full range of the latest surgical techniques and procedures to treat patients with breast cancer. We work closely with a highly skilled group of radiologists, pathologists, plastic surgeons, radiation oncologists and hematology oncologists to meet the specific needs of each patient. We work in conjunction with this multidisciplinary team to provide individualized treatment plans for each patient, ensuring timely surgical intervention and optimal patient outcomes.

Skin cancer surgery

Skin lesions can include warts, moles, cysts or suspicious masses. Removal is indicated in circumstances where the lesion is causing pain, has had suspicious changes over time, is restricting movement or is unsightly. Usually removal can be performed in the office or in an outpatient surgery center where you will go home the same day. The specimen excised will undergo pathologic review and further treatment will be determined post-operatively.

Exceptional technology; exceptional results

We understand how valuable your health is, and we want to be sure you and your loved ones are as comfortable as possible throughout the process. Our team of surgeons perform the vast majority of abdominal surgery laparoscopically, and whenever appropriate we can use robotic aides during your procedure to make sure you recover faster and get back to normal.
