Gastric Bypass

About the procedure

Gastric bypass surgery, also called Roux-en-Y (pronounced: “rue-en-why”) gastric bypass, is a weight-loss procedure that involves creating a small pouch from the upper-most stomach and connecting the newly formed pouch directly to the small intestine, allowing food to bypass the majority of the stomach and the first portion of the small intestine. As a result, food bypasses your duodenum, meaning you absorb less of what you eat, and are full with much less.

Gastric Sleeve

About the procedure

Gastric sleeve surgery involves our surgeons removing about 70% of your stomach utilizing four to five very small incisions. The result is a stomach roughly the size and shape of a banana. With the gastric sleeve, the portion of your stomach that produces appetite-stimulating hormones will be removed. With your newly-formed stomach, you will not be able to eat as much as before and will be less hungry. In turn, you’ll lose weight through decreased appetite and eating notably less.

Robotic and Laparoscopic Surgery

About the procedure

Technology in medicine has progressed to the point where common bariatric procedures (gastric bypass surgery, sleeve gastrectomy, duodenal switch, anti-reflux surgery, and revisions) can be performed by two different advanced and minimally-invasive approaches: laparoscopic or robotic access. Both are ideal for those looking for minimally-invasive bariatric surgery. Both techniques require (on average) 4-6 minimal incisions.

Duodenal Switch

About the procedure

The Duodenal Switch/Loop Duodenal Switch is a weight-loss procedure that brings together two types of bariatric concepts — restriction and decreased absorption.

Balloon Non-Surgical Procedures

About the procedure

Led by Dr. John Weaver, Intragastric Balloon Non-Surgical Procedures can provide you with non-permanent, and non-surgical techniques for weight loss. Balloon procedures can help you shift your dietary habits, and rebuild the foundation of your life. Intragastric balloons require an esophageal insertion procedure (through the mouth and throat) and will be removed in this same fashion after six months.
