Outpatient Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery

Minimally Invasive Weight Loss Surgery – With No Hospital Stay.

Ellis Medicine is the first healthcare provider in the region to offer minimally invasive outpatient bariatric surgery that makes it possible for you to go home the same day as your surgery. We’re excited to give you another safe, effective weight loss surgery option. Now, with no hospital stay!

Outpatient weight loss surgery and traditional weight loss surgery are similar when it comes down to the important stuff. Both methods follow the same principles and get similar results regarding shedding excess weight.

With outpatient bariatric surgery, the procedure is performed via minimally invasive robotic surgery where multiple small incisions are made to your abdomen. This minimally invasive procedure utilizes the latest da Vinci robotic surgical system. Generally, it takes less time to perform with a shorter recovery time, meaning you can go home the same day as your surgery.

For our patients, the most significant benefit of outpatient weight loss surgery is not remaining in the hospital after surgery. Recovering in your own home, in your own bed, is simply more comfortable and can help create a better outcome.

Other benefits of minimally invasive surgery include speedier recovery times, fewer side effects, and often less pain.

The Bariatric Care Center at Ellis Medicine performs the Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass and Sleeve Gastrectomy procedures via minimally invasive outpatient surgery.

How do I know if I’m a candidate?

The best way to know if you qualify for traditional or minimally invasive bariatric surgery is to request an appointment to schedule an in-person consultation with our team.
