Carolinas HealthCare System

Our weight-loss surgeons are board certified and fellowship trained and use minimally invasive surgical techniques that allow you to recover faster, with fewer complications and smaller incisions. Most patients leave the hospital in one to two days.

Surgery Procedures Include

Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy

A portion of the stomach is removed, creating a banana-shaped pouch that restricts the amount of food that can be consumed and absorbed by the body.

Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass

The stomach is stapled and divided, creating a small pouch, and attached to the middle of the small intestine. Food bypasses a section of the small intestine (duodenum and jejunum), restricting the amount of food consumed into the stomach and limiting absorption of calories.
