Weight Loss Surgery Procedures Offered at the CMBS
Our bariatric surgeons have over 70 years of cumulative experience and several thousand operative procedures under their belts. CMBS is an Accredited Center through the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP). All of our bariatric surgeons can perform each of the weight loss surgery procedures laparoscopically, enabling patients to be discharged to home in only a few days.
These procedures include:
- Laparoscopic Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass
- Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
- Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band (often known as LAP-BAND)
- Laparoscopic Revisional Surgery (revision of previously done operations or conversions from one procedure to another)
Each procedure has its own set of risks and benefits. During the pre-operative evaluation program, patients will work with their surgeon to decide which procedure is the best fit for reaching their individual health goals. A variety of approaches to bariatric surgery are available within our program.
