Bariatric Surgery

The Section of Bariatric Surgery causes weight loss through gastric restriction, malabsorption or both. As well, these surgeries are metabolically active, causing improvement in obesity-related comorbidities including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, sleep apnea and more.

Most of these surgeries are performed using minimally-invasive techniques (laparoscopy), with the goal of minimizing complications in this higher-risk patient population.

Our Section performs a wide variety of procedures, including: 

  • Gastric Bypass
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy
  • Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch
  • Revisional Bariatric Surgery
