Weight Loss Surgery in Naples, Florida
Obesity is a prevalent problem in the United States, but those who have struggled unsuccessfully to lose weight may qualify for weight loss surgery. Our programs for weight loss surgery in Naples give you all the tools you need to lose weight and keep it off, including ongoing guidance, support and education.
Weight loss surgery helps you lose weight by reducing your stomach capacity. GI Surgical Specialists offers weight loss surgery in Naples for:
- Sleeve gastrectomy. This weight loss surgery removes much of the stomach to leave a narrowed tube or sleeve, which helps you feel full faster to speed weight loss. Sleeve gastrectomy (also known as gastric sleeve) is performed with minimally invasive methods and, unlike weight loss surgeries like LAP-BAND, does not require any medical devices to be placed within your body.
- LAP-BAND. This weight loss surgery reduces your stomach size by placing an inflatable gastric band around the stomach. LAP-BAND is entirely reversible and, unlike weight loss surgeries like sleeve gastrectomy, requires no permanent changes to your body.
- ROSE. This revisionary weight loss surgery is meant for patients of gastric bypass who have begun to gain weight back due to the stretching of the stomach pouch. ROSE is typically an outpatient, minimally invasive procedure.
GI Surgical Specialists also offers individualized medical weight loss programs for those who are not ready or do not qualify for weight loss surgery. Medical weight loss helps you lose weight with meal replacements, nutritional counseling, behavioral adjustments and fitness programs. Our programs for medical weight loss in Naples give you the continued support and guidance of our medical staff.
Dr. Denk has also developed a revolutionary procedure called WiFi used to treat both acid reflux and obesity. This innovative surgery for weight loss and reflux is minimally invasive like the ROSE procedures.
