Bariatric Surgery Services
Many Americans struggle with maintaining a healthy weight. For people who suffer from obesity and have a body mass index (BMI) of greater than 35, bariatric (weight loss) surgery may be on option. Bariatric surgery is generally only recommended if a physician concludes diet and exercise alone are insufficient to create the amount of weight loss necessary to achieve a healthy BMI.
Bariatric surgery is often done laparoscopically, meaning the surgeon makes several small incisions and inserts small surgical tools through the cuts to perform the procedure. There are three major types of bariatric surgery: gastric band, gastric sleeve and gastric bypass.
