Bariatric Surgery Using the Safest, Least Invasive Laparoscopic Technology
Nothing is more important to us than your health and safety. We are here to help you finally defeat obesity and begin a journey toward a healthier, happier life, which means minimizing the risks of bariatric surgery and maximizing your chances for success. We use the very latest in laparoscopic surgery technology and the most advanced weight loss surgery techniques in order to allow a faster, less painful recovery period.
Laparoscopic surgery allows Dr. Dahiya to complete your bariatric surgery procedure using very small incisions that heal more quickly and reduce the risk of infection and other complications. For example, we use the state-of-the-art SPIDER® Surgical System to perform LAP-BAND®, REALIZE® Band, and Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy procedures with a single incision.
