Choosing a Procedure

When deciding if weight loss surgery is right for you, keep in mind that surgery is only a tool. Your ultimate success depends on strict adherence to the recommended dietary, exercise and lifestyle changes.

The goal is to live better, healthier and longer. After meeting with our surgeon and attending one of our Free Educational Seminars you’ll need to decide if you are ready to make the commitment.

At Arch Bariatrics we perform all surgeries laparoscopically. We routinely perform three surgeries that have resulted in successful weight loss and improved health for our patients: gastric sleeve (also called a sleeve gastrectomy),  gastric bypass and gastric band (LAP-BAND®). In select patients , we also offer Endoscopic intragastric balloon and revision weight loss surgeries. The Arch Bariatrics team will guide you in deciding which procedure will give you the best chance for success based on factors such as your current weight and your ability to follow post-surgical guidelines.
