A Birth Experience Designed Around You

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.


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.


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.


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.
