There are many reasons you may decide you are ready for weight loss surgery. Whether you want more energy to play with your kids, you seek to sleep better, or you are simply ready to enjoy an overall healthier life, we believe you are in the right place at ThedaCare. Bariatric weight loss surgery can make a difference in all aspects of your life. And our caring team of experts is ready to help.

Here are some important things to keep in mind about bariatric surgery.

Types of Surgery

There are two types of procedures available through ThedaCare:

Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass: Our most common and successful surgery, this procedure restricts the size of the stomach by partially bypassing the small intestine. It provides the fastest and most complete loss of excess weight.

Gastric Sleeve Resection: Sometimes the right choice for people who have significant medical issues, this procedure removes about two-thirds of the stomach. It also allows for future procedures if a patient regains weight.
