Surgeries Offered

LAP Band

We offer the LAP-BAND® Adjustable Gastric Banding System, which is an adjustable gastric band designed to help severely obese individuals achieve sustained, long-term weight loss.

The LAP-BAND® induces weight loss by reducing the stomach capacity and restricting the amount of food that can be consumed at one time. The system is very different from gastric bypass because it does not require stomach cutting, stapling or intestinal re-routing.

LAP-BAND® is a much less invasive surgery. The band can be placed around the top portion of the stomach laparoscopically, using "keyhole" surgery. This offers the advantages of reduced pain, a shorter hospital stay and a quicker recovery.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

We offer the newest bariatric procedure, Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy, which is a narrow tube, or “sleeve," placed on the stomach and thus restricts food intake. This procedure is also used for high risk patients as staged approach to surgical weight loss.

Gastric Bypass

We also offer Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass. In a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, more than two-thirds of the stomach is "bypassed," and a small portion (walnut sized gastric pouch) remains functional. It is mostly a restrictive procedure. The limited intestinal bypass contributes to weight loss and hunger control.
