Bariatric surgery is performed using a few different methods. Laparoscopic surgery is less invasive than open surgery, so patients usually have less discomfort, a shorter recovery time and fewer complications. However, there may be times when your bariatric surgery procedure will need to be performed as open procedure rather than laparoscopic but this is rare.

Cary Hospital is proud to announce it has been designated a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence® by the Metabolic + Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP). All of our surgeons are verified members of the American Society for Metabolic + Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).
Your surgeon will help you make the best decision about surgery after a careful evaluation that includes assessing your physical and emotional condition, providing nutrition and fitness counseling along with discussing your willingness to make lifestyle changes.
