Weight Loss Surgery

Considering Weight Loss Surgery? You’ve come to the right place. With no program charge and affordable self-pay options, Chesapeake Regional Healthcare’s weight-reduction surgery program offers high-quality care with positive results-as our patients can attest. The U.S. National Institutes of Health suggests weight-reduction surgery as a choice for individuals who have a body mass index of 35 or greater and also have other health threats. We know your choice to have weight-loss surgery is not simple, but it can be life changing.

That’s why we offer free, twice-monthly informational workshops on the next and fourth Tuesday of the month. You’ll meet our Metabolic and Bariatric Coordinator and one of the board-certified bariatric surgeons, as they walk you through our program requirements and success stories. Our surgeons perform three types of weight-loss surgery and will work with you to determine which is perfect for you after testing and specific appointment best.

Gastric Bypass consists of the creation of a little stomach pouch using a stapling device. A section of the small intestine is mounted on the pouch directly. This reduces how big is the stomach and bypasses a portion of the small intestines. The effect is often a dramatic loss of weight.

The weight reduction slows as your body approaches the average weight for gender and size. Sleeve gastrectomy requires the removal of a large section of the tummy, which leaves a banana-shaped section, or sleeve, that is sealed using staples. Making a smaller stomach pouch limits the amount of food that may be eaten at one time. Your body will stop storing unwanted calorie consumption and start using fat as an energy source. This procedure will not alter normal digestion.
