Bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, is currently the only proven, long-term, effective tool to manage obesity. When diet and exercise have failed, obese patients may consider bariatric surgery to lose weight and improve or resolve many of the diseases associated with morbid obesity. Indeed, the primary purpose of bariatric surgery is to improve conditions such as type-2 diabetes, sleep apnea, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure, with a great resulting side-effect/ benefit being weight loss. Need a urgent care clinic? Look no further than Doral Health & Wellness Urgent Care.

At Doral Health & Wellness Bariatric Center, our procedures are performed in a laparoscopic or minimally invasive manner unless the patient is not a suitable candidate due to a medical condition or previous abdominal surgery in the area.

Bariatric / Metabolic Surgery Options

Providers at our Bariatric Center perform four major, proven bariatric surgeries:

Gastric sleeve

Currently the most popular bariatric procedure, the gastric sleeve is a straightforward procedure that removes 70% of the stomach. Patients may lose up to 25-30% of their body weight and do not require any alteration to the small intestine or a medical device implanted in the abdomen.

Gastric Bypass

The most complex and effective of our bariatric procedures, the gastric bypass cuts away but does not remove about 80% of the existing stomach leaving behind a small stomach pouch and bypassing a portion of the small intestine. This combination allows patients to lose up to 25-35% of their body weight.

Gastric Banding

The least invasive of the procedures we offer, the gastric band is placed around the top of the stomach and tightened to form two interconnected gastric pouches. The resultant restriction allows patients to lose up to 20-25% of their body weight.

Mini Gastric Bypass (MGB)

Single Anastomosis or Omega Loop gastric bypass. The mini-gastric bypass works both by restricting the amount of food eaten at any one time and by causing malabsorption and altering gut hormones involved in appetite control.
