Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass. Gastric bypass surgery makes the stomach smaller and allows food to bypass part of the small intestine.
Adjustable Gastric Band. A gastric band procedure is a restrictive laparoscopic surgical procedure in which a band is placed around the upper most part of the stomach. This band divides the stomach into two portions, one small and one large portion. Because food is regulated, most patients feel full faster.
Sleeve Gastrectomy. During this procedure, the surgeon creates a small, sleeve-shaped stomach. It is larger than the stomach pouch created during Roux-en-Y bypass—and is about the size of a banana.
Our program is a Center of Excellence with American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS), Cigna, United Health Care and also received Blue Distinction through Blue Cross Blue Shield.
