How Bariatric Surgery Helps You Lose Weight

Weight-loss surgery at our Bariatric Surgery Center can help you:

  • Limit the amount of food you can eat
  • Feel full while eating smaller amounts of food

Types of Bariatric Surgery

There are several surgical options to help you lose weight:

  • We use malabsorptive procedures like Roux-en-Y gastric bypass to limit the amount of nutrients your body can take in from food.
  • Restrictive procedures like sleeve gastrectomy  or the adjustable gastric band limit the amount of food in your stomach.
  • When we apply both malabsorptive and restrictive techniques as part of your treatment, these are called combination procedures.

Ask your doctor to help you choose the type of surgery that’s right for you.
