Weight Loss Procedures

While weight loss surgery is a popular and reliable method for getting rid of the excess weight that is preventing you from being your healthiest self, we realize that the decision to have bariatric surgery is very difficult. Combining our unique approach and epic experience with these proven bariatric procedures, our team at the Denver Center for Bariatric Surgery is here to guide you through every step of your weight loss journey.

Bariatric Surgery Procedures

Dr. Michael A. Snyder has offered bariatric surgery procedures at the Denver Center for Bariatric Surgery since 1999. To date, he has personally performed more than 6,000 successful weight loss procedures for patients across the United States.


Gastric Bypass

The benchmark for weight loss surgery, this procedure combines food intake restriction and modest caloric malabsorption to help achieve long-term weight control.

Gastric Sleeve

Also known as a “sleeve gastrectomy,” this procedure removes about 70% of your stomach and makes you full with significantly less. It also notably decreases your hunger (by removing much of the ghrelin--hunger hormone--production).

LapBand® Surgery

This minimally invasive procedure features an adjustable device that is placed around the upper-most stomach. It allows you to control the amount of restriction you have in order to limit the amount of food you can eat and the duration of fullness you experience.

An endoscopic (nonsurgical) procedure is used to insert a saline-filled balloon into your stomach. It is in place for six months, as part of a full year of medical management through the Denver Center for Bariatric Surgery. Average results are more than 3X the weight loss of traditional diets and exercise!*
