Weight loss surgery

Weight loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, is performed on patients with obesity. There are several types of bariatric procedures, but all focus on making modifications to the digestive system with the goal of significant weight loss.

Bariatric surgery we perform

For some, weight loss using diet and exercise just doesn't work. Factors such as hormones and genetics play a huge factor, and bariatric surgery is the best option. If you are considering weight loss surgery, our providers are here to discuss your options, which include:

  • Gastric bypass — This approach reduces the size of your stomach to restrict your food intake
  • Gastric sleeve — This surgery is typically minimally invasive and reduces your stomach size and shape to a sleeve-like pouch

From the first consultation, we create a positive supportive environment to encourage you to meet your health goals.

Qualify for weight loss surgery

Your body mass index is a key factor in determining your eligibility for bariatric surgery. BMI is a way to measure body fat that is based on your height and weight.

In order to qualify, you need to have one of the following:

  • a BMI of 40 or higher
  • a BMI of 35 or higher with an obesity-related condition such as high blood pressure, sleep apnea or heart disease
  • a BMI of 30 or higher with type 2 diabetes that isn't responsive to medical treatments and lifestyle changes
