The information provided below will help familiarize you with the types of surgery we currently perform. By becoming educated on the pros and cons of each, you’ll have a better understanding of the surgery and what to expect. You can also make a better choice among the available options.

Procedures that we offer:
- Sleeve Gastrectomy
- Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
- Revision Surgery
Surgery achieves weight loss by restricting food intake (restrictive), diminishing how much of food is absorbed from the digestive tract to the rest of the body (malabsorptive), or a combination of both. Revision surgery is not a different category according to the above classification, but it has its own technical specifics that makes it deserve a special category. A nice overview of the surgical techniques and their history can be found at the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery website http://asbs.org/ .
