Weight Loss Surgery Options
Weight loss surgery is a tool that can help you change your eating habits to gradually lose weight and to achieve your goals for better health and well-being.
Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass
According to the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery and the National Institutes of Health, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (stomach stapling) is the current gold standard procedure for weight loss surgery.
Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
Sleeve gastrectomy is the newest weight loss surgery procedure. It involves laparoscopically or minimally invasively removing approximately 75% of the stomach.

Approved by the FDA in 2001, the Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band is the safest, least invasive and only adjustable surgical treatment for morbid obesity in the United States.
