Bariatric Surgery

The division of bariatric surgery takes pride in providing a range of surgical weight-loss services, including minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic procedures. Our team collaborates with a certified dietitian and medical weight-loss team to craft a personalized weight management plan, imparting essential knowledge on proper nutrition and fostering healthy eating habits to facilitate weight loss. Our team is dedicated to help patients embark on their healthy weight-loss journey before, during and after surgery, and continue to monitor and educate patients to maintain a healthy weight.

Weight loss surgery represents a transformative opportunity beyond shedding pounds; it signifies a reclaiming of one's health. This journey involves bidding farewell to issues like high cholesterol, diabetes, sleep apnea, and joint problems, ultimately enhancing the quality of life. Our comprehensive support system guides patients through every step of the process.

Some of the surgeries we perform include sleeve gastrectomy, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, revisional surgery. Our board-certified surgeons are fellowship-trained in bariatric surgery and have extensive experience in minimally invasive and robotic bariatric surgery.

Our team of surgeons, in collaboration with advanced gastroenterology and obesity medicine, takes time to learn about our individual patients’ lifestyles and behaviors and provide customized care. Our physicians are passionate about comprehensive weight management with focus on pre- and post- operative care and strive to provide the highest level of service to our patients.

We also offer elective clinical rotations for third and fourth-year medical students. (Link to elective).
