Your Weight Loss
Surgery Options

Based on your age, weight and overall health, your physician will recommend the best type of bariatric surgery for you.

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy reduces the size of the stomach by about 75 percent, which limits the amount of food that can be eaten. The surgery is not reversible. Food consumed passes through the digestive tract as usual, allowing it to be fully absorbed in the body.

Gastric Bypass
Gastric bypass surgery reduces the size of the stomach by creating a small pouch out of the upper stomach. The small intestine is cut and rerouted to reduce the absorption of calories.

Testimonial

testimonial
After years of struggling with my weight and trying almost every diet plan, I knew I needed help. When I hit my highest weight of 284 pounds, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Menachery.

From start to finish, Dr. Menachery and his team cheered me on through my entire journey. Everyone treated me with compassion and made me feel like part of the family. If I had questions or concerns, I could reach out and get answers right away. After the initial consultation, I knew I was ready for the next step.

Since the bariatric surgery, I have lost 97 pounds and am still losing more weight. In just eight months, I have gone from a size 22 to a size 14. Now I actually feel like going to the gym or walking around my neighborhood. Having weight loss surgery was one of the greatest decisions I have ever made.
