Compassionate Care

At Venice Regional Bayfront Health, we understand that weight loss is a complicated issue, and it requires a supportive community to make lasting changes. We love the opportunity to walk alongside our patients through the entire process, providing both trusted medical guidance and compassionate emotional support. When it comes down to it, this is far more than a medical procedure—it's a chance for a fresh start, a boost of confidence, and a newfound hope for what the rest of your life can look like.

A Variety of Procedures Customized for You

Losing weight can be incredibly hard, both physically and emotionally. Many people struggle with their weight for years and years and just can't seem to get ahead. If that sounds familiar, it may be time for you to consider a bariatric weight loss surgery. Our surgeons regularly perform several weight loss procedures:

  • Adjustable Gastric Banding
  • Gastric Bypass
  • Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy
  • Revision Surgeries
  • Conversion Surgeries
  • Nonsurgical Intragastric Balloon Procedure
  • Laparoscopic Procedures
  • Medically-Supervised Weight-Loss Program

We want to make sure our patients are comfortable with what to expect at every point in the process. As part of that, we offer regular seminars with one of our bariatric doctors. We also offer a free online assessment to help determine if surgery is right for you.
