At Palmetto General Hospital, we provide an array of bariatric procedures. Weight loss surgery may resolve or improve some of the serious complications of morbid obesity, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, joint pain, and incontinence.
Bariatric Surgery Services at Palmetto General Hospital
Gastric Bypass: malabsorptive procedure that constructs a pathway from the stomach to the small intestine to avoid nutrient and caloric absorption.
Sleeve Gastrectomy: Sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical weight-loss procedure in which the stomach is reduced to about 15% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach along the greater curvature.
Bariatric Revision Surgery: a revision procedure may take place if the initial surgery was not a success or an alternative procedure is optimal.
