Weight Loss Surgery Operations


Weight Loss Surgery: One Size Does NOT Fit All!

A number of different operations are available to treat severe obesity. Each of these has its unique advantages and disadvantages. No single operation is right for everyone. When you meet with our surgical weight loss team, we will help you determine which operation is best for you. We will also help to determine whether you are a good candidate for laparoscopic surgery (surgery through very small incisions) or if you would be better suited to a traditional open approach.

The most common operations we perform are:

How Do I Determine the Best Operation for Me?
To determine the best possible procedure for you, we take into consideration several different factors: how overweight you are, what types of food you eat, and whether you have any particular gastrointestinal problems such as colitis or irritable bowel. Also, we work with you to identify any lifestyle concerns that would make one operation preferred over another.

We usually prefer to use the laparoscopic approach (multiple tiny incisions) for our surgeries, since it results in less postoperative pain and faster recovery. However, some individuals with specific health issues may not be good candidates for this type of surgery. This determination can only be made on an individual basis.
