Severe obesity is a chronic condition that is hard to treat with diet and exercise alone. Bariatric surgery is an operation on the stomach that helps patients with extreme obesity to lose weight. This surgery is an option for people who can not lose weight by other means or who suffer from serious health problems related to obesity.
Restrictive surgeries shrink the size of the stomach which reduces the amount of food it can hold. This makes you feel full when eating much sooner than you did before surgery.
The surgery restricts food intake, which helps weight loss. Some surgeries also interrupt how food is digested, preventing some calories and nutrients, such as vitamins, from being absorbed. Recent studies suggest that bariatric surgery may even lower death rates for patients with severe obesity. The best results occur when patients follow surgery with healthy eating patterns and regular exercise.

Duodenal Switch Surgery
Has proven to be one of the most effective forms of bariatric surgery available. The revolutionary surgical procedure helps patients lose weight quickly and keep it off.
Gastric Bypass Surgery
In Full Gastric Bypass Surgery the digestive stomach is reshaped to restrict the amount of food intake of the patient and its absorption; thus reducing the amount of fat and calorie ingestion.
Gastric Sleeve Plication
The surgery, performed laparoscopically, is very similar to gastric sleeve surgery in the restriction of the stomach. Gastric plication is a less invasive weight loss procedure than gastric sleeve – there is no cutting, stapling or bypassing the intestines.
Gastric Sleeve Surgery
In this procedure, a thin, vertical sleeve of the stomach (approximately eight inches long) is created using a stapling device and the rest of the stomach is removed.
Lap Band Surgery
Minimally invasive laparoscopic medical method to assist with the fight of chronic obesity.
Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery
This bypasses the most highly absorptive section of the intestine. There are no large incisions needed and this procedure is performed laparoscopically, lowering the risk or large surgical scars or hernias post op.
Revision or Conversion Surgery
Patients look to revision surgery when a problem occurs that can be related directly to the first bariatric procedure.
