In addition to prompting rapid, significant weight loss, these procedures also improve or resolve related health problems, such as diabetes, hypertension and sleep apnea. Not only do our patients enjoy a better quality of life, they are also healthier!
NJ Weight Loss Doctors offers several surgical weight loss procedures designed to suit the diverse needs of our patients. We only perform the latest procedures that are proven to be safe and effective, with expert surgical technique.
Time has shown us that the safest and most effective weight loss procedures are:
Adjustable Gastric Banding
Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding, commonly referred to as Lap Band surgery, is a type of minimally invasive weight loss surgery (bariatric surgery) that involves wrapping a band around a part of the stomach to reduce its size and limit the capacity of food intake.
Sleeve gastrectomy is a bariatric procedure in which the surgeon reduces the size of the stomach and creates a small, sleeve-shaped stomach which is about the size of a banana. The procedure is particularly considered as a treatment option for patients with a BMI of 60 or higher.
Gastric Bypass Surgery
Gastric bypass, also known as Roux-en-Ygastric bypass, is a bariatric or weight loss surgery for obese patients who have not been successful losing weight through dieting, exercise and medication.
Revision Weight Loss Surgery
Bariatric surgery is a successful tool to combat obesity and weight gain. However, some patients may need a secondary or revision procedure to address problems that occur or to achieve their desired weight loss goal.
