At Warm Springs Surgical Center, we specialize in the latest gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and gastric banding procedures. There are two basic ways that bariatric surgery works to help patients lose weight and improve or resolve co-morbidities: (1) malabsorption and (2) restriction. One common bariatric surgery performed today is the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery, which uses both methods.
Warm Springs Surgical Center is a freestanding, multi-specialty ambulatory center where our surgeons perform a wide range of outpatient surgical procedures.
