Weight Loss Surgeries Options 

At Phoebe Sumter Bariatrics, we know how frustrating it is to attempt year after year to lose the weight. If you’ve tried to lose weight without success and you have a BMI of 35 or more, you may be a candidate for bariatric surgery. Phoebe Bariatrics offers two surgical options for obese patients to lose weight and improve their overall health.

Surgeries we offer:

After either of these procedures, you will increase the success of your weight loss by eating well and getting exercise. The goal of weight loss surgery is to help you get your body weight down to a safer range with expectations of any associated conditions and risks being reduced, reversed or completely eliminated. Increased mobility, higher self-esteem and body image, and overall well-being throughout the weight loss journey are all benefits of this procedure.

These laparoscopic bariatric surgeries are minimally invasive procedures. Our highly-trained and experienced surgeons can view the inside of your abdomen and perform the surgery through several small incisions, greatly reducing patient discomfort and recuperation time. Our physicians will discuss the laparoscopic surgical options and help you determine which one is right for you.
