Novant Health’s bariatric surgeons are nationally recognized for their skills, experience and quality. They are trained in the latest procedures, including minimally invasive surgery, resulting in less pain and easier recovery.
Surgical options include restrictive procedures, such as laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding and vertical sleeve gastrectomy, which prevent overeating by limiting the amount of food that can enter the stomach at one time. Other procedures, such as Roux-en Y gastric bypass, both restrict stomach size and create a bypass around part of the small intestine to help your body absorb fewer calories, which helps you lose weight.
