Bariatric surgery

We know bariatric surgery is a life-changing decision. Our surgeons at Dignity Health Medical Foundation are here to help, answering any questions about the process. Our bariatric surgeons work with you to determine the best treatment plan for you.

Our skilled bariatric surgeons are committed to quality, focusing on our patients’ safety, comfort, and long-term wellness. Bariatric surgery includes various procedures to assist patients who haven't found success with other weight loss methods in their journey to a healthier life.

What are the different types of weight loss surgery?

  • Gastric band. A surgeon places a band around the upper part of your stomach to create a small pouch to hold food, making you feel full after eating small amounts of food.
  • Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass. By stapling off the upper section of the stomach, this surgery reduces the size of your upper stomach to a small pouch.
  • Sleeve gastrectomy. This procedure reduces the stomach to about 15% of its original size by surgically removing a large portion along the greater curvature. 
  • Duodenal switch. Combining a sleeve gastrectomy and intestinal bypass, this approach removes about 65% of the stomach and divides the lower intestine, leaving only a few feet where food and digestive enzymes meet. 
  • Revision: This procedure corrects or improves prior weight loss surgery.
