Weight Loss Surgery Options at University Hospitals

Our bariatric surgery specialists and weight loss surgeons at University Hospitals use the latest surgical advancements to help patients experience safe and successful weight loss to enjoy a healthier, more active lifestyle. Bariatric surgery procedures are an option for patients who have not had long-term success with diets and other weight loss efforts. Our program offers both minimally invasive surgical weight loss solutions and non-invasive weight loss procedures to fit each patient's unique weight loss and health needs.

If weight loss surgery is part of your treatment plan, our highly experienced bariatric surgery specialists and staff offer individualized support for patients – including lifetime nutrition counseling for patients both before and after weight loss surgery with a team of registered dietitians. Many of our skilled staff are people who have had weight loss surgery themselves. So, they understand the journey and know how to help our patients achieve long-term success.

Types of Weight Loss Surgery

We offer several types of weight loss surgery options, including minimally invasive and non-invasive options. These minimally invasive procedures are performed through tiny incisions in the skin and can shorten your recovery time and significantly reduce pain and scarring. More importantly, risks of infection or bleeding are much lower with smaller incisions. This also helps us provide better pain control. More of our patients do not want to take morphine or oxycodone, and the smaller incisions help our hospitals minimize the use of these medications.

Our weight loss surgery patients are typically up walking in the hallway and able to start sipping on water three hours after surgery. Most of our patients are ready to go home after one or two nights, depending on the surgery they choose.
