What is Bariatric Surgery?
Bariatric surgery is the collective term for surgical procedures that help
you lose weight. The surgeries are done in one of several ways, including
(but not limited to) reducing the size of the stomach (as with gastric
banding), removing a portion of the stomach (as with gastric sleeve surgery)
or bypassing most of the stomach and rerouting the small intestine (as
in gastric bypass surgery).
Bariatric surgery may be the best solution for achieving significant weight
loss and getting your health and general wellbeing back on track!* Bariatric

that can meet your needs, including laparoscopic gastric sleeve, Roux-en-Y
gastric bypass surgery, and gastric banding revisional surgery. We are

also maintain your desired weight long-term. By offering different types
of bariatric surgery we are able to find the most suitable treatment plan
