Bariatric surgery helps severely obese people lose weight. Surgeons in the Bariatric Surgery Program offer a range of weight loss procedures, including gastric bypass surgery and gastric banding.
These experienced surgeons will help determine which procedure is right for you. Whenever possible, they use minimally invasive techniques, which involve smaller incisions and can lead to less pain, a shorter hospital stay and reduced scarring.
Surgery, though, isn’t the only part of weight loss. That’s why the bariatric surgery team also includes dietitians and psychologists who will help you plan satisfying meals and adjust to life after surgery.
