Bariatric Surgery

The goal of bariatric surgery is to help patients achieve significant and sustainable weight loss and resolve or improve obesity-related medical problems. There are multiple surgical procedures that are available and the decision to proceed with the surgery is taken after thorough evaluation and discussion with the patient. Check out Bariatric Surgery Specialty Unit.

Other treatment options

Bariatric embolization may reduce the sensation of hunger in some patients with morbid obesity. It targets ghrelin, the hunger hormone by limiting blood flow to the stomach.

The procedure is done under local anesthesia where a tiny catheter is navigated into the arteries feeding the fundus of the stomach from a pinhole in the groin. Small gelatin particles are injected into these small arteries to decrease blood flow to the fundus where ghrelin is produced.

The procedure can be done with one-night hospital admission and patients can go home the next day with very little discomfort. This innovative therapy involves new technologies, such as 3D navigation, microcatheters, and state of the art x-ray imaging devices.
