Our bariatric surgeons specialize in minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery, which means they make only very small incisions and use specialized instruments to perform surgery. Many patients qualify for this type of minimally invasive weight-loss surgery. This approach results in less pain, a shorter recovery and fewer complications for our patients than traditional surgery with larger incisions.
The right surgical treatment for you will be determined with your physician. Holy Cross Hospital and Holy Cross Germantown Hospital are equipped to support the following weight-loss surgeries:
Body ContouringWeight-loss surgery patients may quickly lose a large amount of weight after surgery. For about half of the patients, the rapid weight loss results in excess abdominal skin. These patients may be candidates for body contouring plastic surgery to remove the extra skin.
Specialized Equipment Holy Cross Hospital and Holy Cross Germantown Hospital are specially equipped for bariatric surgery. We use surgical instruments, operating room tables, radiology equipment, beds, furniture and wheelchairs that are specifically designed for the safety and comfort of weight-loss surgery patients.
