Minimally Invasive Weight-loss Procedures

Bariatric surgery can be a life changer. Living with excess body weight often leads to diabetes, high blood pressure, severe sleep apnea, acid reflux, heart disease and more. If you’ve tried losing weight and you're still struggling, Corona Regional Medical Center offers solutions.

There are several types of surgical procedures, including gastric bypass and gastric sleeve. Your doctor will help determine the best procedure for you, depending on your current health condition and risk factors.
