Weight Loss Surgery

Helping you reclaim your life.

Our weight loss experts are here to help you find the best option for your individual needs. Find out if you qualify for bariatric surgery.

Our Program

Our weight management program provides more than surgical expertise; it gives you control and helps you choose the life you want to live.

Our weight loss surgery options include gastric bypass and gastric sleeve surgery. Our surgeons are widely recognized for helping patients who have had failed weight loss surgeries with bariatric revisions, including lap band revisions.

After surgery, our team stays up to date with your health improvements through lab testing and monitoring. We also provide access to a support group so you can share your progress and talk to people who are going through the same process.

Our Approach

We discuss your goals with you on an individual basis and look at both surgical and nonsurgical weight management options. We’re committed to using minimally invasive techniques to offer a shorter, more comfortable recovery. And our proficiency with laparoscopic techniques allows us to perform surgery through incisions just a few centimeters across.

In order to serve each individual patient’s needs, our surgeons work with other health care professionals as a team. Our top surgeons coordinate seamlessly with dieticians, endocrinologists, nurses and social workers. We take into account both the rewards and the potential challenges along the way to help create a personalized manageable action plan that’s right for you.


Weight Loss Seminars

Patients considering bariatric surgery or wanting to learn more about weight loss options should attend a seminar, held monthly. This free seminar is hosted by our Keck Medicine of USC physicians. The goal is to inform about the program, its requirements, the procedures, results and complications.

Attending Support Groups

Bariatric programs usually include a support group for patients. Support groups often are run by a psychologist, program coordinator or dietitian.

In a support group, you’ll find people who have similar wellness goals, want to celebrate your successes and support you in challenging times. Support groups are devoted to these common experiences, so you can share your feelings in a safe environment.
