Weight-Loss Surgery Options

If you're looking for weight loss surgery in the Seattle area, EvergreenHealth Weight Loss Services offers four surgical options:

Gastric Bypass

Surgically alters the stomach to limit the amount of food you can ingest and decrease caloric absorption.

Duodenal Switch and Duodenal Switch – Single Anastomosis

An operation that restricts food intake and calorie absorption by removing a portion of stomach and rerouting a portion of the small intestine.

Adjustable Gastric Band

Adjustable, a purely restrictive operation that reduces food intake.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

This procedure generates weight loss primarily through gastric restriction (reduced stomach volume). The stomach is restricted by stapling and dividing it vertically.

Minimally Invasive and Robot-assisted Surgeries

EvergreenHealth Weight Loss Services is among the first in the country to perform nearly all procedures using laparoscopic technology. This minimally invasive technique reduces the length of hospital stay, diminishes discomfort, limits surgery scarring and shortens recovery time.

As a result, some of our patients are able to return home the same day as their surgery.

All weight-loss surgeries are performed while the patient is under general anesthesia. Our board certified anesthesiologists are trained and experienced in the care of severely obese patients.
