Bariatric surgery alters the stomach, the intestines, or both to limit how much food you can eat and how many nutrients you absorb, ultimately leading to weight loss. Dr. Veninga specializes in laparoscopic surgery, which involves making tiny incisions in the abdomen. Single-incision bariatric surgery is a landmark advancement in this technique. During the procedure, Dr. Veninga will insert a laparoscope (a tiny camera attached to a flexible tube) through one small incision. This allows him to view the surgical site and surrounding tissues on a large monitor while making the necessary alterations. This approach results in a faster, more comfortable healing experience and less scarring.
