Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery Options

You’ll find the full range of proven weight loss surgeries at Hackensack Meridian Health. Our experienced surgeons can recommend the procedure that best fits your medical needs and lifestyle.
  • Gastric Bypass – Shaping the stomach into a smaller pouch and bypassing part of the small intestine means your body absorbs fewer calories.
  • Lap-Band Surgery – Placing a band around the upper part of the stomach to create a small pouch means you’ll eat smaller portions and feel full more quickly.
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy (Gastric Sleeve) Removing 75-85 percent of the stomach reduces the amount of food you can eat and hormones that stimulate your appetite.
  • Weight Loss Revision Surgery – If you had poor results after your first weight loss surgery or if you gained weight or experienced complications, you may consider corrective surgery.

Recover Faster

Your weight loss procedure is performed through a few small incisions. Surgeons use a laparoscopic or robotic surgical system with state-of-the-art computer technology, a camera and small tools. This gives you a:
  • Faster recovery
  • Less blood loss
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Reduced pain
