Laparoscopic Procedures 

The vast majority of our weight loss surgeries are laparoscopic procedures, operations performed with special tools through small holes in your skin. Instead of one large incision, our surgeon makes a few small holes in your abdomen and inserts surgical tools and a small video camera through the holes. This method allows our physicians to see exactly what they’re doing and work with great precision. 

With smaller incisions, you usually heal faster, have smaller scars, and have less risk of complications.
