Weight Loss Surgery

OMC's surgical weight loss program can help you learn and practice the lifestyle and healthy behavior skills that are necessary to successfully reach your weight-loss and health-management goals.

The decision to have weight loss surgery must only be made after much consideration and education on the benefits and risks of available surgical options.

Having safe and successful weight-loss surgery is only one part of a larger program: You must be committed to participating in pre-operative and long-term follow-up care, be motivated, and have realistic expectations of weight loss.

The preparation for weight loss surgery is a process that typically takes months. The more informed you are with the process before, during, and after the procedure, the more successful your outcomes.

Surgical Options/Procedures

Adjustable Gastric Band

  • Adjustable Gastric Band (implanted)
  • Adjustable Gastric Band (fully filled)
  • Adjustable Gastric Band (lock view)

OMC offers placement and maintenance of an Adjustable Gastric Band as a less-invasive alternative to full gastric bypass surgery. The Adjustable Gastric Band is placed around a patient's esophagus where it enters the stomach. A surgeon adjusts the band’s fit by inflating or deflating its inner lining with a saline solution. The band will reduce your stomach’s size and restrict the amount of food you are able to eat at one time, usually resulting in the loss of one to two pounds of weight per week (on average).
