Surgical Weight Loss Options
Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
A small pouch is formed from the stomach, and the small intestine is attached to the pouch, bypassing the remainder of the stomach and a large portion of the small bowel.
Approximately 80% of the stomach is removed, with the remainder of the stomach resembling a sleeve.
Combined with lifestyle changes, diet and exercise, it is possible to lose approximately 60-80% of excess weight, depending on which surgical procedure is performed.
Non-surgical Weight Loss Options
We offer a comprehensive, physician-monitored weight loss program called Optifast®, for patients who prefer a non-surgical method of weight loss.
The 12- week Optifast® Program offers 4-5 weeks of nutritionally dense full meal replacements to initiate weight loss. Patients are seen for weekly one-on-one coaching sessions with our registered dietitian and bimonthly visits with a physician. Patients are provided personalized guidance from an exercise specialist and are offered health coaching sessions as well as bimonthly group support sessions.
Lifelong support and guidance is available after the 12 week program completion.
We also offer weight management medical nutrition therapy with our dietitian for patients that are interested in other ways to lose or manage their weight.
