Discover the best weight-loss procedure for You.
You’re in the best hands at Jacobi’s Bariatric Surgery Center. Our veteran surgeons – Dr. Ajay Chopra and Dr. Jayne Lieb – have performed many hundreds of procedures, and are regional leaders in the use of the popular sleeve gastrectomy.
For nearly all qualified patients, our surgeons perform advanced minimally invasive bariatric surgery, the safest type available. Minimally invasive surgery (also called laparoscopic surgery) is done through five tiny “keyhole” incisions – rather than one large abdominal cut – resulting in a very quick recovery and minimal pain. Because patients are up and walking so soon, the risk of blood clots, wound infection and hernia is almost non-existent, thereby increasing your safety and the likelihood of good results.
If your medical condition makes open bariatric surgery the safest option, our surgeons use that approach.
