He will do his best to make your weight loss surgery experience as hassle-free as possible, and he’ll help you maintain a better and healthier lifestyle afterward.

Lose weight with experienced, comprehensive care.

For people who have a body mass index (BMI) of at least 40 or are at least 100 pounds overweight, laparoscopic gastric sleeve surgery may be the ideal solution for a renewed, normal and healthy way of life. This gastric sleeve provides an avenue for long-term weight loss and a reduction of health risks for people who battle morbid obesity.

How does the procedure work?

With this minimally invasive surgery, the sleeve gastroectomy reduces stomach capacity and appetite hormones creating a sensation of feeling full faster. The reduction in food intake, along with a healthy diet, leads to long-term weight loss. As a laparoscopic procedure, the surgery requires only tiny incisions, reducing scarring, recovery time and postoperative discomfort. And with laparoscopic gastric sleeve surgery, individual weight loss and nutritional needs can be easily achieved.
