Getting Started

Weight Loss Surgery Info Session

Laparoscopic Roux En Y Gastric Bypass
Shown to be the most effective procedure over time, gastric bypass has helped patients achieve significant and sustainable weight loss.

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
The most popular weight loss procedure, this is a highly effective alternative to the gastric bypass and the gastric banding procedures.

Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding

The least invasive procedure, gastric banding keeps organ structure intact but is less effective for producing significant weight loss over time.

Revisional Surgery

Revisional surgeries are for patients who have already undergone a weight-loss surgical procedure and can take the form of a reversal, a conversion, or a repair.
