St. Luke's Clinic – Bariatrics and General Surgery

Our team offers state-of-the-art bariatric surgical care to people facing morbid obesity and its complications. While our surgeons primarily offer laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy, they're happy to discuss other weight loss options as well, including duodenal switch, gastric band intragastric balloon, mini gastric bypass, and other new procedures as they become available.

We also perform general laparoscopic procedures, including gallbladder, hernia, colon, and breast surgeries.
