The daily challenges of being overweight are more than an inconvenience. Obesity is a disease and contributes to a number of health-related risks such as diabetes, hypertension and sleep apnea. Proper treatment is necessary, and when your weight makes it difficult to exercise and diet, it may be time for another approach.
Bariatric surgery, also known as weight-loss surgery, can give you a fresh start but it is not the end of your journey. It takes dedication to lose the weight and keep it off, even after surgery.
If you qualify for weight-loss surgery, look to the surgeons at the Valley Care Clinics Weight Loss Center. You and your bariatric surgeon can choose the procedure that’s right for you.
Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
A minimally invasive surgery to remove part of your stomach, creating a long and slender sleeve shape. An alternative for those who want to absorb all the nutrients from the foods they eat.
Orbera™ Non-Surgical Weight-Loss Balloon
Struggling to lose weight through diet and exercise and do not want or cannot have weight-loss surgery? This option may be right for you.
Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass
Your surgeon creates a small pouch from the top segment of your stomach and connects it to the small intestine. This bypasses the majority of the stomach, making you feel full after eating significantly less.
Revision surgery can help people who’ve already had bariatric surgery, but have not lost weight as expected or regained weight.
OverStitch® Revision Procedure
This advanced technology can offer patients a new alternative to reach their target weight.
Obalon® Balloon System
Swallowable, lightweight balloons to help you feel full and eat less.
The least invasive bariatric procedure. By attaching an adjustable band around the top part of the stomach, we can limit the amount of food the stomach holds and slow the digestive process.
AspireAssist® Weight-Loss Solution
The AspireAssist is a reversible, non-surgical weight-loss solution that works by reducing the number of calories your body processes.
