Weight loss surgery

Weight loss surgeries we perform

Our skilled bariatric surgeons use the latest medical technology to help you on your weight loss journey. Our laparoscopic and robot-assisted procedures are minimally invasive, so they have less overall impact on your body, allowing you to heal quicker as you take charge of your health.

The right procedure for you depends on your unique health needs, and we offer a variety of surgeries to help meet those needs, including:

  • Gastric sleeve
  • Lap band removal
  • Roux-en-Y gastric bypass
  • Transoral outlet reduction

Nonsurgical weight management

Surgery is not right for everyone. There are many reasons you may not want or need to partake in weight loss surgery, and, whenever possible, we prioritize lifestyle alterations before making that decision to have surgery. At our facilities, you can work with registered dieticians, who provide nutritional counseling and education, as well as support groups to help you foster the emotional and peer interactions you need.
