Weight Loss Surgery
Bariatric Surgery in Macon and Albany, Georgia
Weight loss is a complex disease that requires intervention by a variety of specialists to ensure that any weight loss strategy has long-term success. The needs of our obese patients are different than those of our general surgery patients. Many of our obese patients have had a negative self-image for years and have endured weight-related humiliation and prejudice.
At Palmyra Surgical, our goal is to provide a comprehensive approach to bariatric (weight loss) surgery by forming a team of experts with the knowledge and skill necessary to help patients resolve the psychological, behavioral, and physical components of obesity.
We pride ourselves on the accepting and supportive environment we have created to help people change their lives by achieving sustained weight loss.
Sleeve gastrectomy using DaVinci Robot is one of the latest advancements in weight loss surgery.
Laparoscopic Bariatric Surgery
Gastric band is the least invasive and lowest short-term risk of the bariatric surgeries.
A second Chance
Bariatric revision surgery is available for gastric bypass and gastric band patients who experience increased weight over time.
Minimally invasive bariatric surgery:
- Faster recovery period
- Minimal scarring
- Reduced post-operative pain
- Lesser risk of post-surgical complication
Why turn to Weight Loss Surgery?
Obesity is the leading cause of preventative death in the United States. Excess weight increases your risk of developing chronic health conditions like type-2 diabetes, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and heart disease.
Weight loss surgery reduces your risk of developing obesity-related health problems, and in some cases may reverse the onset of chronic disease.
In addition to Gastric Sleeve surgery and Lap Band surgery, Dr. Bagnato offers minimally and non-invasive revisionary procedures to give gastric bypass and gastric band patients a second attempt at weight loss success.
