Bariatric Center

With over one third of Americans-nearly 97 million adults-being classified as overweight or obese, bariatric surgery may be the answer for which those people have been looking for some time. Because every person is different, the Bariatric Center at Ocala Regional Medical Center offers three types of bariatric surgery-- gastric bypass Roux-en-Y, adjustable Lap-Band and Gastric Sleeve that may either be performed open or laparoscopically. When performed laparoscopically it means smaller incisions and faster recovery times for patients. The minimally invasive procedure lessens the amount of pain and promotes early recovery, with reduction in later complications like hernias and adhesions. The Bariatric Center at Ocala Regional Medical Center has superb outcomes.
