Surgical Weight Loss
For some people, diet and exercise aren't enough. Cheyenne Regional offers surgical hope to those who have constantly tried to lose and keep off excess weight. We offer two surgical options for people ready to make a lifelong decision to become healthy:
- Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass is a laparoscopic procedure that reduces the size of the stomach, therefore requiring the person to consume less food to feel full.
- LAP-Band System is a less-invasive option that is adjustable and reversible. This surgery requires no stomach stapling or intestinal re-routing.
