Weight Loss Surgery in Bakersfield

Bariatric procedures from experienced surgeons

Adventist Health Bakersfield is an MBSAQIP-accredited comprehensive center. If you need to lose a significant amount of weight, you might consider bariatric surgery. Adventist Health offers this option through bariatric solutions.

Our team of bariatric surgeons will identify if you're a candidate for bariatric surgery. There are several factors to consider when determining if bariatric surgery is the right option for you. That’s why our bariatric program holds monthly seminars for those considering weight-loss surgery.

You can learn more about our services, which include:

  • Roux-en-Y gastric bypass: This is the most common type of weight-loss surgery. It reduces the size of the stomach by stapling off a section of it and attaching it directly to the small intestine. This limits the amount of food a person can consume and how many calories are absorbed.
  • Vertical sleeve gastrectomy: This procedure removes a large part of your stomach — about 80 percent. The part of the stomach that remains is joined together with staples.
  • Lap-band system: Tailored to fit your needs, this low-risk procedure gets you back home the next day. The band is adjustable, and the procedure is reversible.

Doctors Hormuz Irani, John Garcia, Nirav Naik and Cyrus Moon are surgeons with the bariatric program. They hold monthly seminars for those considering bariatric surgery. Seminars are held on the second Tuesday of every month. For more information or to sign up, call (661) 869-6580.
