Welcome To The Center For Metabolic & Obesity Surgery
Welcome to The Center for Metabolic and Obesity Surgery, the private metabolic surgery practice of Dr. Wiljon Beltre, where it is our goal to help you empower yourself to lose weight and improve your health safely and successfully! Located in beautiful Altamonte Springs, Florida, we are pleased to offer currently all four major forms of advanced laparoscopic metabolic and bariatric surgery—gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, biliopancreatic diversion (with or without duodenal switch), and gastric band, as well as revision surgery for individuals who have already had previous bariatric surgery. We specialize in these cutting-edge surgical techniques because for many individuals who are severely obese, they offer one of the most effective ways to achieve long-term weight loss.
The benefits of metabolic surgery go way beyond just weight loss, however. Both scientific studies* and the personal experience of recent patients are beginning to confirm what surgeons have suspected for quite a while: that metabolic surgeries such as gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy stimulate metabolic and hormonal changes within the body that not only facilitate aggressive weight loss, but also minimize and potentially even resolve many obesity-related health problems such as sleep apnea, cardiac disease, fatty liver, polycystic ovarian disease leading to infertility, and arthritic joint pains. Most spectacularly, these metabolic procedures may stop type 2 diabetes, with some patients even finding that they no longer require their diabetes medication within hours of their surgery!***
