Lap-Band Surgery


The laparoscopic band is composed of three parts: the silicon band, connective tubing, and an access port. The band is placed around the stomach, and the tubing connects the band to the port. The port is placed entirely beneath the skinís surface and is hidden from sight.


Gastric Bypass Surgery


Gastric bypass is the most frequently performed bariatric surgery in the United States. Many surgeons prefer gastric bypass surgery because it generally has fewer complications than other weight-loss surgeries. Gastric bypass surgery can provide long-term, consistent weight loss if you exercise and eat a healthy diet.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery


Unlike other weight loss surgery, gastric sleeve surgery is normally reserved for those considered extremely or morbidly obese. In most cases a BMI of 50-60 is necessary to qualify. If your BMI is 50 or above, or health factors make you a non-candidate for other weight loss surgery, Gastric Sleeve Surgery may be right for you.

Gastric Sleeve surgery is also useful for people that qualify for a Lap Band Surgery but do not want to bother

with additional doctors visits for adjustments to the Lap Band.
