About Us

We use a minimally invasive laparoscopic technique in over 99% of our procedures. We specialize in gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, duodenal switch, adjustable gastric band and both revisions for weight regain and corrective surgery for chronic problems after previous bariatric surgery. Each patient is evaluated by a registered dietitian, surgeon and psychologist. Our family nurse practitioner provides critical support throughout the program and helps in the extensive preoperative and postoperative education courses.

In addition, our experienced staff facilitate your authorization process. Medical weight loss therapy is provided in the office your insurance company requires it or we can work with your primary care physician to satisfy that requirement. We also offer a full adolescent bariatric program for youths aged 13 - 19 and there is no upper age limit. Our goal at Banner - University Medicine Obesity and Bariatric Surgery Center is it to make your transition to better health as seamless as possible.
