OUR BARIATRIC SERVICES

The Weight Loss institute was created to provide a single program that would provide surgical and nonsurgical weight loss solutions for patients struggling with obesity. Our goal is to approach each patient holistically with a multidisciplinary team. A well-rounded approach includes not only the doctors, but also a nurse practitioner, psychologists, exercise physiologists, and dietitians to assist those who wish to lose any amount, from a few pounds to significant weight reduction. Many factors are at play for patients who want to make this lifestyle change. If eating healthy and exercising regularly isn’t enough to help you shed excess weight, you may want to consider a minimally invasive surgical approach.

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

This procedure involves surgery on the stomach only (it is a restrictive procedure) and does not involve the intestine (which would make it malabsorptive).

Robotic Gastric Bypass

Using the da Vinci system, the stomach is modified into a small upper pouch so that only a small amount of food can be eaten at one time.

Medical Weight Loss Program

Medical weight loss is a proactive management of diet,
