Surgical specialties

Bariatric surgery

Bariatric surgery provides patients who are morbidly obese with the necessary assistance to lose weight by dramatically reducing the stomach size. This reduces the amount of food that can be eaten at a meal, resulting in calorie reduction that leads to weight loss.

Our surgeons offer three common bariatric procedures.

  • Gastric bypass—During a gastric bypass, the size of the stomach is reduced and a portion of the small intestine is bypassed.
  • Gastric sleeve—During a gastric sleeve, the stomach is divided into two sections and a new, smaller stomach is created from one of the sections.
  • Revision weight loss surgery—Revision weight loss surgery is used to make revisions to a gastric bypass or gastric sleeve surgery if the desired weight loss results were not achieved.

Cardiothoracic surgery

Cardiothoracic surgeons perform operations on the heart and lungs. Our cardiothoracic specialists perform a wide range of surgeries, including:

  • Complex repair of thoracic-aortic diseases
  • Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG)
  • Minimally invasive lung and chest surgery (VATS)
  • Minimally invasive valve surgery
