  3. Weight Loss Surgery
    Weight loss surgery is a major surgery. It is the most effective tool to treat morbid obesity. Majority patients enjoy an improvement in obesity-related health conditions (such as mobility, self-image and self-esteem) after the successful results of weight loss surgery. These results should not be the overriding motivation for having the procedure. The goal is to live better, healthier, and longer. The best way to get a full assessment of your condition is to schedule a consultation to determine if weight loss surgery may be an option for you. We may be reached for an appointment at (805) 879-4011. Weight Loss Surgery Procedures in our office: Laparoscopic Roux En Y Gastric Bypass Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
