"I had low self-esteem and started to develop multiple medical issues due to my weight. I decided to have gastric sleeve surgery and feel better than I have ever felt. My self-esteem has increased tenfold. It was the best decision I ever made!"

Nearly 70% of Americans are overweight, and nearly 40% of Americans are considered obese.** Obesity has significant effects on our health. The longer an individual is obese, the more at risk they are of developing weight-related conditions such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, even certain types of cancer. It also leads to a diminished quality of life and can even lead to an earlier death/decreased life span. But there are ways we can help you with both surgical and non-surgical weight loss options. Make yourself a priority and start living a healthier life today.

What weight loss surgery can do for you.
Portion
Portion Control =
Fewer Calories
In each of these gastric procedures, the patient feels full faster as a significant potion of the stomach is removed or restricted from use as a result of the procedure.
Suppression
Appetite
Suppression
Also common to the Gastric Sleeve and the Gastric Bypass is the absence of the "hunger hormone" which blunts the appetite significantly.
Recovery
Laparoscopic =
Faster Recovery
Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive technique where a video camera and surgical instruments are inserted through small abdominal incisions. Compared to open surgery, benefits may include a marked decrease in appetite.
Diabetes
Type II Diabetes
Cure
Evidence shows that the Gastric Sleeve cures 90% of Type II diabetes patients and Gastric Bypass cures 95% of patients in the first 12 months. These are just two of the many life-changing, life-extending statistics of losing weight.
