Weight Loss Surgery Options

University Hospitals Offers Successful Options for Long-Term Weight Loss

University Hospitals Digestive Health Institute’s Nutritional Health & Bariatric Surgery Center provides the latest advancements for long-term weight loss. Weight loss surgery at UH gives new hope to men and women who have tried unsuccessfully to lose extra weight through traditional diets and exercise regimens.

The amount of weight you lose will depend on the weight loss procedure you choose. With the proper diet and lifestyle changes, most patients will maintain this weight loss.

Procedures We Offer

Our highly trained bariatric surgeons offer several types of weight loss procedures, including:

Faster Recovery, Less Pain

All weight loss procedures at UH Nutritional Health & Bariatric Surgery Center are performed using a minimally invasive approach. Patients and their surgeon decide together which approach will benefit them the most; laparoscopic, robotic or an endoscopic procedure.

Laparoscopic and robotic surgery are both done by using one to six small incisions with the aid of a video camera to perform the weight loss operation.

Laparoscopic surgery has many benefits including:

  • Faster, more comfortable recovery
  • Less pain
  • Less scarring
  • Less bleeding

The benefits of robotic surgery include:

  • Better visualization inside the body
  • Improved surgical precision
  • Greater ability to move surgical instruments to any angle

Endoscopic procedures are done using a thin flexible tube called an endoscope. The endoscope is placed down the throat and has a small camera which allows the doctor to perform the weight loss procedure. The benefits of endoscopic surgery include:

  • No surgical incisions
  • Fast healing time
  • Fewer side effects
  • Same day procedures

Active, Healthier Life

Patients at the UH Nutritional Health & Bariatric Surgery Center are able to go home quickly after weight loss surgery. Our goal is to help patients heal quickly and start an active and healthier life.
