Bariatric Surgery - Surgical Weight Loss

Minimally Invasive (Laparoscopic) vs. Conventional Surgery

Bariatric Surgery can be performed conventionally or with minimally invasive techniques.

Minimally Invasive surgery: Over 95% of our surgeries are performed this way.

  • Performed through a series of small incisions using highly specialized surgical instruments.


  • Less skin and muscle tissue trauma
  • Shorter, less painful recovery
  • Less scarring
  • Fewer incisional problems such as infections and hernias

Conventional Surgery (sometimes known as open surgery)

  • Requires an incision down the middle of the abdomen, from the breast bone to just below the belly button.
