Finding Solutions That Work for You

We know how frustrating it can be when diet and exercise aren’t enough to achieve a healthy body weight. Our team can help you understand if a bariatric procedure, like gastric bypass or sleeve, is your next best step. You may be a candidate for bariatric surgery if you:

  • Are between the ages of 18 and 65
  • Are not dependent on drugs or alcohol
  • Are ready and willing to commit to a new lifestyle
  • Have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or above
  • Have a weight-related condition, such as high blood pressure, heart disease or sleep apnea
  • Have tried to lose weight through other means

We’ll discuss factors like your age, medical history, previous weight-loss attempts, health conditions and your body mass index (BMI) to determine which solution is the best fit to help you reach your goals.


You Deserve Support at Every Step

We know that undergoing a bariatric procedure is a big decision, but you’ll have a guide by your side.

They will be there to walk you through the process, answer any questions before surgery and follow up with you after discharge, too.

    Gastric Sleeve

    Gastric sleeves have become a popular option since they don’t involve bypassing the small intestine and have minimal long-term complications. Gastric sleeves work best for people with lower BMIs and who can supplement them with increased physical activity.

    Gastric Bypass

    Gastric bypass is designed to reduce the size of the stomach to one or two ounces to reroute food away from the stomach into the first part of the small intestine. This procedure helps increase energy expenditure and changes in digestive hormones.

    Revision and Conversion Procedures

    We offer surgical procedures for people who previously had bariatric surgery that had not worked properly for them, resulting in band slippage or blockage, weight regain or severe heartburn and reflux. Depending on your needs, we may recommend either a revision, which modifies your original procedure, or a conversion, which replaces your procedure with a new solution.
