Gastrointestinal Surgery

We offer comprehensive state-of-the-art care for patients with anorectal cancer and a full range of gastrointestinal, abdominal and colorectal conditions and diseases. We also care for morbidly obese patients who are eligible for surgical solutions to help them with weight loss.

In caring for our patients, we harness the latest technologies, with a focus on minimally invasive techniques, such as NOTES, a scarless surgery that is used for the removal of the gallbladder and appendix.

Minimally invasive surgical procedures we offer for weight loss include:

  • empty Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, in a small stomach pouch is created to restrict food intake. Then, a Y-shaped section of small intestine is attached to the pouch to allow food to bypass the lower stomach, the duodenum (the first segment of the small intestine), and the first portion of the jejunum (the second segment of the small intestine). This reduces the amount of calories and nutrients the body absorbs.

  • LAP-Band® surgery in which the surgeon places a band around the upper part of your stomach to create a small pouch to hold food. The band limits the amount of food you can eat by making you feel full after eating small amounts of food. 

  • Sleeve Gastrectomy, a weight-loss surgery that involves removing about 85 percent of the stomach. The remaining portion of the stomach is stapled closed, creating a thin, vertical sleeve of stomach. The smaller-sized stomach holds less food, creating a feeling of fullness with significantly less food.

Our physicians and nursing staff are committed to providing safe and compassionate care. We would be honored to care for you and your family.
