Revolutionary procedures, life-changing results
Weight-loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, has changed significantly in recent years. Today, enhanced surgical options provide healthy outcomes with less risk. Current procedures are performed laparoscopically - minimally invasive surgery, which means less time in the operating room, reduced pain, a shorter stay, and a faster recovery.
The surgeons of the SSM Weight-loss Institute perform three types of weight-loss surgery:
- The Roux-en-Y divided gastric bypass
- The Adjustable Gastric Banding System: Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS)
- Sleeve Gastrectomy
The SSM Weight-Loss Institute offers a comprehensive bariatric program that addresses all needs prior to and following weight-loss surgery.
All aspects of the program are conveniently located on the SSM DePaul Health Center campus in St. Louis, Missouri.
