We are a multi-disciplinary, fully comprehensive clinic focused around patient outcomes. Our team includes a fellowship-trained bariatric surgeon, a highly specialized bariatric dietitian, bariatric psychiatrist/psychologist, nurse coordinators, and associated pulmonologists and cardiologists. Once you are enrolled in our program, your success becomes our passion. Our goal is to make the initial decision to seek bariatric surgery to be the hardest part of your entire journey through weight loss surgery and recovery.
We offer the most treatment options in the region including medical, surgical, and endoscopic treatment modalities. Our team members bring an incredibly diverse amount of experience to our bariatric program; collectively, we bring together the best parts of high level university centers, academic centers of excellence, and successful community clinics. This experience has allowed us to construct the most complete weight loss center in the region.
Weight loss surgery has drastically evolved over the last 50 years and is now incredibly safe and effective. Surgery is now covered by most insurance plans and is performed with the most advanced techniques available while being as minimally invasive as possible. Most patients only require an overnight stay in the hospital after the operation. The most important part of surgery is finding a highly skilled, fellowship trained specialist who will chose the most appropriate procedure for you. Our surgeon has been accredited by the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery for advanced fellowship training and comes to us from one of the busiest bariatric centers in Ohio. We specialize in the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, Sleeve Gastrectomy, Duodenal Switch surgeries. In additional, we also perform revisional surgery including bypass reconstruction for persistent pain and/or ulcers, post-operative complications of past procedures, gastric band removals, and conversion of old procedures to new ones for additional weight loss. All surgeries are done laparoscopically, meaning through small poke holes, drastically reducing postop pain and recovery time.
We also offer several nonsurgical weight loss options as well. Our experienced weight loss dietitian leads our medically-supervised weight loss program. This program includes regular dietary and lifestyle counselling sessions along with physician-supervised weight loss medications. We provide meal replacement products and supplementations through our facility, so you can sample and pick your favorite items to incorporate into your dietary plan.
The team is also excited to begin using the new Obrera intragastric balloon system. The balloon is another nonsurgical weight loss option we provide. The balloon is inserted through the mouth with an endoscope under light anesthesia at an outpatient setting. It fills up space in the stomach, giving the sensation of fullness and inhibits cravings and overeating. We remove the balloon in 6 months. Most patients lose about 50-75 pounds during that 6 month time with the balloon!
