ROUX-EN-Y GASTRIC BYPASS

You can expect significant weight loss from this premier gastric bypass surgery designed to make your stomach much smaller. By enabling food to bypass part of the small intestine, you’ll find yourself getting full more quickly, with less desire to eat, helping you keep the weight off for years to come.

Covering The
Basics of Bariatrics.

Setting A New Standard For Complete Bariatric Surgery.

A Treatment Plan Tailored To You.

Here a complete series of bariatric surgery techniques is offered to ensure you receive the treatment that's best for you with the highest levels of care and compassion possible. After your procedure, you’ll begin a comprehensive follow-up program with personal support to help you maintain your weight-loss and healthy life.

DUODENAL SWITCH

This procedure is considered the most powerful approach for patients looking to lose the greatest amount of weight. It’s especially effective for insulin-dependent diabetes, high triglycerides or high cholesterol.

SLEEVE GASTRECTOMY

The gastric sleeve has become a popular option, since it doesn’t involve much ongoing maintenance and has a low rate of long-term complications. In addition, it’s been found to improve or potentially resolve type 2 diabetes for a number of patients.

ADJUSTABLE GASTRIC BAND (LAP BAND)

Another technique our specialists use to catalyze weight loss is a laparoscopic approach that secures an adjustable silicone band-like device around the stomach to restrict food intake. It’s the second-most frequently performed procedure next to traditional gastric bypass surgery.

Knees and hips. Shoulders and wrists. Feet and ankles. They’re all in good hands here. Thousands of patients just like you have changed their lives for the better thanks to innovative approaches to orthopedic treatment. The experts on your team are skilled in minimally invasive joint procedures to help ease pain, lessen scarring, and speed your recovery time. There’s a better way to a better you, and it starts right here at Florida Hospital.


Ease Your Pain. The Easiest Way.

Expert Care for Your Central Nervous System

Here are a few questions to ask yourself when considering if bariatric surgery is right for you.

  • Are you 100 pounds or more over your ideal body weight?
  • Is your BMI 40 or greater?
  • Is your BMI 35 or greater with obesity-related health issues, like diabetes or high blood pressure?
