At Peninsula Regional Medical Center, our team of experienced surgeons, nurses, dieticians, and other professionals guide you through your entire weight loss journey using the latest bariatric or weight loss surgical techniques.

Bariatric surgery is helping thousands of people achieve their weight-loss goals across the nation and here on Delmarva.

Bariatric surgical procedures help us lose weight by restricting the amount of food the stomach can hold, causing malabsorption of nutrients or a combination of both. Therefore, decreasing stomach size and decreasing the amount of nutrients and calories absorbed by our GI tract leads to weight loss.

Most weight loss surgeries today are performed using minimally invasive techniques. Our Bariatric surgeons perform laparoscopic-assisted surgery and robotic-assisted surgery. Your surgeon will discuss with you which procedure best suits your surgical need and situation.

The most common weight loss surgery procedures include the sleeve gastrectomy, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch.
