Weight Loss (Bariatric) Surgery

Weight Loss surgery may be an option when diet and exercise haven’t worked for you or when you have serious health problems because of your weight. Gastric bypass and other weight-loss surgeries (Bariatric surgery) may limit how much you can eat or reduce your body’s ability to absorb nutrients or both.

All forms of weight-loss surgery are major procedures with potentially serious risks and side effects. Bariatric surgery requires the patient to make and maintain permanent healthy changes to their diet and to get regular exercise to help ensure the benefits and success of their surgery are long-term.

Las Vegas Surgical’s Dr. Jiashou Jimmy Xu, MD is also the Medical Director of Weight Loss Surgery Center at St. Rose Dominican Hospital, Siena Campus in Henderson.
