We offer two surgeries for Permanent Weight Loss, The Lap Band and the Gastric Sleeve. The lap band is minimally invasive and is done outpatient. The Gastric Sleeve is more invasive, 80% of your stomach is removed and requires an overnight stay. Both of these procedures are very successful. The Orbera Balloon is a Temporary Weight Loss Procedure designed to help you to lose 30-40 pounds and is removed after 6 months. You can reach your goal weight with either one of these procedures. You must keep in mind that regardless of which procedure you chose, to have a successful weight loss you must be prepared to change your eating habits and implement some form of exercise into your daily routine.
