Weight Loss Surgery

A plan designed with your well-being in mind

A top weight-management program requires more than surgical expertise. It’s about giving you control and helping you choose the life you want to live. We connect you with the support system you need to reach and maintain long-term success.

It’s not about the scale
Our primary focus is on your quality of life. Whether it’s improving your overall health, having more energy or just feeling better about the reflection in the mirror, we discuss your goals with you on an individual basis and look at both surgical and non-surgical weight management options.

Our weight loss surgery options include gastric bypass, gastric sleeve surgery and lap band surgery. Our surgeons also are widely recognized for their expertise in helping patients who have had previous failed weight-loss surgeries with bariatric revisions, including lap band revisions.

We keep the whole person in mind
Bariatric surgery can improve both physical and emotional well-being. In addition to health benefits such as reduced hypertension, controlling sleep apnea and managing type 2 diabetes, most patients experience improved comfort and a boost of self-esteem. We take into account both the rewards and the potential challenges along the way to help create a personalized manageable action plan.

The Latest Surgical Advances

We’re committed to using minimally invasive techniques to offer a shorter, more comfortable recovery. Our proficiency with laparoscopic or “keyhole” techniques allow us to perform surgery through incisions just a few centimeters across.

Team Approach

We work with the whole patient, so our patients work with a whole team. Our top surgeons coordinate seamlessly with dieticians, endocrinologists, nurses and social workers.

Post-Surgical Care

After surgery, you’ll have access to a support group, and we’ll stay on top of your health improvements with lab testing and monitoring. Our goal is to keep you motivated with nutrition and exercise tips and tools to keep you going strong.
