Minimally Invasive Surgery

Carolinas HealthCare System surgeons perform weight loss surgery using minimally invasive techniques called laparoscopically that result in several small incisions, as opposed to more invasive options that leave larger scars. Most patients report less pain, fewer complications and faster recovery times.

Weight loss help is provided at the following Carolinas HealthCare System facilities:

Specialties in minimally invasive weight loss procedures include:

Gastric bypass
