If you have a LapBand and are interested in your surgical options surgical weight management is the place for you. From removal of the band to conversion to a sleeve gastrectomy, our group is by far the most experienced in the region.

There are a number of reasons that patients may require and or want to have their lap band removed.

  • Failure to Tolerate Filling of the Band
  • Failure to Lose Weight with the Band
  • Weight Regain After the Band
  • Significant Reflux Disease with a Filled Band
  • Slippage of the Band

Band removal to sleeve gastrectomy can be done in either a one stage procedure or a two stage procedure. The decision is one your surgeon will make. Surgeon experience is critical in the decision making process.

Success Stories, Seminars, BMI Calculator

Success Stories

Our surgeons have been performing bariatric surgery since 2003 with a success rate that is well above the national average. We believe in long-term patient support and hold monthly support groups for past and future clients.


We invite you to attend an informative seminar to learn more about our bariatric surgery program. Our seminars are free, pre-registration is not required, and we encourage you to bring family and friends with you to the seminar.

BMI Calculator

While only a qualified surgeon can determine if you are a candidate for weight-loss surgery, you may be a candidate for bariatric surgery if you have a BMI of 40, or a BMI 30-35 or higher with one or more obesity-related conditions.
