Bariatric SurgeryBariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) includes a variety of procedures performed on people who have obesity. Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through removal of a portion of the stomach or by resecting and re-routing the small intestine to a small stomach pouch (gastric bypass surgery).
Varicose Vein TreatmentVeins contain tiny valves that help keep the blood moving forward, toward the heart. When these little valves malfunction, blood can “pool up” behind them, weakening vessel walls and causing them to bulge and appear dark or purplish.
Medicall Weight LossMedical weight loss management takes an individualized approach to losing weight that's based on medical knowledge of the weight-loss process and the factors that can contribute to gaining weight, as well as your own personal medical history and lifestyle factors.
Laparoscopic Sleeve GastrectomySleeve gastrectomy is an approach to weight-loss surgery that removes about 80 to 85 percent of the stomach, leaving a sleeve-shaped portion behind to serve as the actual stomach.
Laparoscopic Gastric BypassGastric bypass is a type of weight loss surgery that works by bypassing a portion of the stomach and intestine so you eat less food and absorb fewer calories as well.
Hernia RepairA hernia occurs when a part of an organ begins pushing through the wall that normally holds it in place. As the organ pushes outward, it can cause bulging and pain that can range from moderate to severe.
SclerotherapySclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to eliminate varicose veins and spider veins. Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a solution (generally a salt solution) directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to collapse and stick together and the blood to clot.
GallbladderThe gastric balloon is inserted without surgery, using a long, flexible scope that is inserted through the mouth and into the stomach. Once the balloon is in place, it will be filled with saline solution, typically about 13 to 23 ounces.
Non-Invasive SurgeryA non-invasive procedure is a conservative treatment that does not require incision into the body or the removal of tissue. For the treatment of back pain, a combination of non-invasive procedures such as chiropractic manipulation, physical therapy, and heat therapy are typically prescribed for several weeks.
