I feel quite privileged that you have taken a moment to learn more about our bariatric surgery program. I love what I do, because bariatric surgery is more than just weight loss surgery... it is health surgery, with the power to transform a life... your life!

Severe Obesity imposes a heavy burden on a human life. It strains your heart and can contribute to blocking the arteries and overloading the leg veins. It can make you short of breath during the day and reduce the oxygen level in your blood at night. It can interfere with the proper function of insulin and the regulation of blood sugar, resulting in diabetes. It can lead to high blood pressure, high cholesterol and a host of other medical problems. It can make you hurt from back and joint pain or from heartburn or gallbladder disease or skin irritation. It can reduce your chance of having children.

Obesity also imposes significant restrictions on many of the freedoms and simple pleasures of life, impacting where you can buy clothes, where you can sit, the activities you can enjoy with your spouse or children or friends, how well you sleep, how you travel, your social and job opportunities, even sometimes how you are perceived by others, and more. It can alter the way you feel about life, making you depressed or anxious. Finally, it can influence the way you feel about yourself.

However, with bariatric surgery, YOU HAVE THE POWER to change all this, not only by achieving a healthy weight, but by freeing yourself from many or all of your weight-related medical problems, reducing your risk of cancer, eliminating many of the restrictions on your life and improving the QUALITY of your life, the excellence of your life, the happiness and fun of your life.

It is an honor to be of service to our patients in this way and my staff and I are proud that we can offer this service to you. You see, we enjoy great satisfaction from your success. It is my conviction that you will not find a finer bariatric surgeon or a more compassionate bariatric program anywhere.

We have a vision for your future.

Gastric Bypass

A small pouch is created from the upper part of the stomach and connected directly to the upper small intestine. This will enable you to be less hungry, eat less and absorb fewer calories. The reduction in your daily calorie intake will cause you to lose about 50% of your excess weight within 6 months and 80% within one year and resolve or improve your weight-related medical problems.

Sleeve Gastectomy

A narrow stomach tube or “sleeve” is created with removal of 80- 85% of the stomach, including the area that produces the hunger hormone called Ghrelin. Your hunger will be reduced and your stomach will hold less enabling you to eat less. The reduction in your daily calorie intake will cause you to lose about 65-70% of your excess weight within one year and resolve or improve your weight-related health problems.

Adjustable Gastric Band

A synthetic device meant to remain in your body for life, the band is placed around the upper stomach creating a small stomach pouch. The band is then gradually inflated or “filled” to provide restriction of the passage of food and a feeling of fullness with less food. On average, patients can lose about 45% of their excess weight. However, a significant percentage of patients will not even achieve this result or will require removal of the band for a complication.

Bariatric Revision Surgery

Occasionally, patients who have previously had bariatric surgery will require revision surgery either due to a complication that has occurred since the original operation or because of weight regain. A complication called prolapse or “slippage” can occur after band surgery, usually requiring band removal and revision to another bariatric operation. Often, patients who have regained weight do not require revision surgery, but rather, the re-establishment of proper eating habits and nutritional and fitness counseling.
