SURGICAL WEIGHT LOSS PROCEDURES
In 2014, there were 193,000 bariatric procedures performed annually in the United States. Numbers are on the rise because bariatric weight loss may help severely obese people lose a large amount of weight. It may also help improve potentially life-threatening health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and severe sleep apnea.*
As the procedure numbers have risen over the years, the procedure options for patients have also grown. This is especially helpful if you are considered too high-risk for gastric bypass surgery, the most common gastric surgery being performed today.
At Mercy Weight Management Center, our experienced bariatric surgeons help our patients reach their long-term goals through laparoscopic weight loss surgery procedures. Laparoscopic surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery that uses smaller incisions, causing less pain and scarring, and leading to faster recoveries for our surgical weight loss patients.
Our experienced bariatric surgeons perform the following laparoscopic procedures. They also offer patients holistic guidance on proper diet and exercise, coaching them every step of the way so they can achieve long-term weight loss and live a healthier, happier life.
- Gastric Bypass Surgery (This procedure is normally performed laparoscopically, but our surgeons may use traditional open surgery techniques if they deem it best for your unique health situation.)
- Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy
- Robotic Weight Loss Surgery
