Surgical Weight Loss

We understand that losing weight and keeping it off is difficult.

It not only harms your health, but your quality of life and the way you feel about yourself.  Our clinic is on the forefront of providing metabolic surgery for fighting the diseases of diabetes and obesity.  Add years to your life with a healthier body so you can create more enjoyable memories with family and friends.

Our program is designed to fit each person’s unique needs and has helped patients regain their health. Our team includes a bariatric surgeon, nurse practitioner, nurses, dietitians, a psychologist, exercise physiologists and insurance coordinators. With follow-up care from our team and support from others on the same path, clients can change their lifestyles and navigate the transition to a healthy weight and a better life. We combine the latest in expertise and technique with exceptional support. Surgical options include the following robotic procedures:

Robotic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Gastric sleeve surgery is a restrictive type of procedure that permanently reduces the size of the stomach, thereby limiting food intake as well as the sensation of hunger. The smaller stomach size restricts the amount of food that can be eaten, so patients lose weight by eating fewer calories. This procedure also impacts the production of ghrelin.

Robotic Gastric Bypass

This is the most common type of bariatric surgery. During this type of procedure, part of the stomach is separated from the rest of the stomach and closed off with staples to create a smaller pouch, resulting in less calorie absorption. Patients also have a greater sense of satisfaction with less food. The surgery results in less production of ghrelin, a hormone that may be partly responsible for making you feel hungry.

Gastric Band Removal

Our services do not currently include new gastric band surgeries, but we do remove previous lap band procedures.

Revisional and Conversion Procedures

A revision is a minimally invasive surgical option to modify or correct a previous bariatric surgery. There may be instances where some patients may need revision surgery for limited weight loss, weight regain, unresolved medical conditions, or complications. A conversion procedure replaces a previous bariatric surgery with a different procedure. Examples include replacing a Lap-band with a gastric sleeve or to a gastric bypass, or sleeve gastrectomy conversion to gastric bypass, especially in patients with insufficient weight loss, severe reflux, or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

Cumberland Bariatric Institute surgeries are performed at Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital.
