Gastric Banding Bariatric Surgery Procedure in Johnson City, TN

If diet and exercise have produced disappointing results in your attempt to lose weight, perhaps it is time to seek obesity help in Johnson City, Tennessee. Weight loss surgery may alleviate your symptoms or help reduce your risk of diabetes, obesity-related heart disease, and GERD. The two most common bariatric surgery procedures are gastric banding (also called Lap Band® surgery) and gastric bypass surgery in Johnson City. In lap banding, the placement of a gastric band is divides the stomach into two sections. The top part holds a smaller amount of food, creating a sensation of being full more quickly. Gastric bypass is similar, but uses staples to bisect the stomach, and moves food directly from the top portion into the intestines. To determine whether these or other weight loss surgeries are right for you, contact your Johnson City, TN bariatric surgeon to schedule a consultation.

Johnson City is located in Washington, Carver, and Sullivan counties. As part of the Med-Tech corridor, it serves patients from a large area through medical care establishments that include Johnson City Medical Center and soon-to-be completed Franklin Woods Community Hospital.
