Surgical options

Gastric Bypass

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Gastric Banding

In most cases, these operations can be performed laparoscopically, using advanced "keyhole" laparoscopic surgery techniques, with smaller scars and faster recovery. Our nurse practitioners, dietitians , psychologist and surgeons conduct a complete patient evaluation to determine if surgery is necessary and to ensure successful outcomes. Assessment at the OHSU Sleep Disorders Clinic and other specialty consultation is available if indicated.
