Obesity is one of the most significant health issues we face as a nation. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control recently reported that more than one-third (35.7%) of adults in the U.S. were considered obese. In addition to limiting the ability to participate in many of life’s activities, obesity is also associated with a number of serious health conditions including heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes.

For millions of Americans struggling with obesity, bariatric surgery is an excellent option to overcome this debilitating disease. Many patients who undergo the procedure often see a significant increase in their quality of life and a decrease or elimination of negative health conditions.

Bariatric surgery encourages weight loss by reducing calorie absorption and the amount of food a person can eat at one time. At Inspira Medical Center Vineland, we offer patients several options for weight loss surgery, including:
  • Laparoscopic gastric sleeve (sleeve gastrectomy), a procedure in which the surgeon removes 80 to 85% of the stomach
  • Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, during which the surgeon makes a small pouch at the top of the stomach and connects the small intestine to it, allowing food to then bypass most of the stomach
  • Laparoscopic gastric banding (lap band), a procedure in which an inflatable silicone prosthetic device is placed around the top portion of the stomach and then the device can be adjusted through a small access port placed under the skin
