It is always best to lose weight through a healthy diet and regular exercise. But if you are not successful with those techniques and are significantly overweight, you may be a candidate for bariatric surgery. Medical professionals at ACMC are able to advise you about which procedure is the best solution for you. Proper screening, preparation and follow-up care are essential to achieving weight loss goals and maintaining good health following weight loss surgery.

Surgical options for weight loss include:

  • Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
  • Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass (Roux-en-Y)

After care is also provided for those with a history of Adjustable Gastric Band placement (LapBand).
