Bariatric treatment is more than just a one-time surgery: the best results come with a commitment to lifestyle changes for years to come.

Weight Loss Surgery Options

Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery

This advanced procedure reduces stomach capacity without removing any stomach tissue.
It involves the bariatric surgeon laparoscopically creating large folds in the stomach, reducing stomach capacity by about 70 percent.

Explore Gastric Sleeve Plication

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Also known as sleeve gastrectomy, gastric sleeve surgery removes a large portion of the stomach to limit the amount of food that patients are able to consume. This procedure has a high success rate, and some patients experience a loss of more than half of their weight in only four to six months.*

Explore Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Single-Incision Laparoscopic Sleeve Surgery

This minimally invasive technique (also known as SILS) is similar to traditional gastric sleeve surgery, but it involves only one small incision created in the belly button.
This method often allows for a quicker recovery and minimized scarring.

Explore SILS

Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery

Similar to gastric bypass surgery, this procedure modifies the stomach and creates a pouch that can hold less than a cup of food. "Mini" gastric bypass involves less intestinal rerouting, so the surgery is quicker and the chance of complications is reduced.

Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric bypass is one of the most commonly performed bariatric procedures. It divides the stomach into two pouches to limit food consumption. Gastric bypass has a high success rate, with a significant number of patients experiencing maintainable long-term weight loss.*

Explore Gastric Bypass Surgery


SADI-s stands for single anastomosis duodenal-ileal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy. This procedure is a variation of duodenal switch surgery. A surgeon creates a gastric sleeve, which is then connected to a portion of the small intestine that bypasses most of the digestive system.

This offers restrictive and malabsorptive benefits by shortening the path the food travels and limiting caloric absorption. The main difference between SADI-s and duodenal switch is that SADI-s involves one artificial connection instead of two, making it a simpler procedure.


Explore SADI-s

Duodenal Switch Surgery

This procedure can reduce the size of your stomach and restrict the number of calories your body absorbs. It has a lower chance of producing adverse side effects than other weight loss surgeries, and it does not interfere with your natural stomach functions.

Explore Duodenal Switch Surgery

LAP-BAND Surgery

The LAP-BAND system is designed to reduce your stomach capacity through the use of a medical band. The band can easily be adjusted to maintain results. LAP-BAND surgery involves a relatively short procedure and recovery time.

Explore LAP-BAND

Revision Surgery

If you have undergone bariatric surgery and have experienced complications or are dissatisfied with the results, a bariatric surgeon in network with Tijuana Bariatrics can perform revision surgeries to correct complications. In some cases, it may be necessary to achieve or maintain satisfactory results.
