Procedures we offer

Most forms of weight loss surgery involve shrinking or bypassing the stomach so that the patient will feel fuller quicker. This makes it easier for people to eat more reasonably sized meals and avoid overeating. Most weight loss surgeries are permanent, but there are some reversible and minimally invasive options.

We offer the following procedures:

  • Laparoscopic inverted gastric sleeve surgery
  • Gastric bypass
  • Gastric balloon
  • Adjustable gastric banding
  • Revision weight-loss surgery

The surgeons at Methodist Charlton will guide and inform you on the specifics of each procedure. Bariatric surgery is big decision, and you should know what the procedure will involve, and what will be required of you during recovery and beyond.
