Surgical Weight Loss

We offer a team-based approach to surgical weight loss that will support you every step of the way with the aid of our state-of-the-art bariatric surgery program.

Our surgeons use smaller incisions resulting in fewer complications and faster recovery, allowing most patients to leave the hospital in as little as one to two days. Most patients can return to work shortly after their surgery. Please call for support group meeting dates and times. The weight loss surgery techniques we use include:

  • Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
  • Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy
  • Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band

Education and Support for Weight Management

A big part of your successful journey to weight loss is your commitment to follow-up care. Our support groups will help guide you through the entire weight loss process. By participating in a weight loss support group, you are more likely to reach your goals than if you tried alone.

All pre and post-operative weight loss surgery patients and their family members are welcome to join us.
