OUR PROCEDURES

GASTRIC SLEEVE

The Gastric Sleeve is a surgery that removes much of the stomach, but leaves a banana-shaped section of it in place. This mimics the normal path of digestion, however the stomach is much smaller.

GASTRIC BYPASS

Gastric bypass is the most prominent bariatric surgery that has the least risks. It results in weight loss by significantly reducing the size of your stomach, so you cannot eat as much, and you absorb less fat from the foods you eat.

MINI GASTRIC BYPASS

The stomach is stapled into a small upper pouch and a large lower pouch. The jejunal small intestine is connected to the upper part of the stomach, bypassing the duodenum and major part of the stomach.

ACID REFLUX SURGERY

Laparoscopic acid reflux surgery (commonly referred to as Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication) involves strengthening the “valve” between the esophagus and the stomach by wrapping the upper portion of the stomach around the lowest portion of the esophagus.

ADVANCED LAPAROSCOPY

Dr. Camelo’s surgical expertise extends beyond weight loss surgery. In his general surgery practice, he performs many other procedures laparoscopically including: Inguinal, Ventral Incisional, Femoral, Umbilical, Internal Hernia and Hiatal Hernia

REVISION SURGERY

Regardless of where patients had their surgeries performed, Dr. Camelo Revision Surgery Aproach is more than a surgical technique, its a comprehensive program and in depth look to the original procedure and a plan of action.
