About Your Surgery

Successful Weight Loss is Possible with Metabolic Surgery

Metabolic surgery, also known as obesity surgery, is a general term incorporating a range of surgical procedures designed to help you lose a significant amount of weight and control weight-related diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes. Metabolic surgery can safely and successfully change the way your body processes food, including appetite reduction, correcting the body’s energy expenditure mechanisms, and/or changing energy intake. In other words, it can facilitate real weight loss in a way that is simply impossible through diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices alone.

A variety of different metabolic surgery options are now available, all of which are both more advanced and significantly safer than the original “stomach stapling” procedure. Dr. Wiljon Beltre at Beltre Bariatrics Center for Metabolic and Obesity Surgery in Maitland, Florida (neighboring Orlando), is a Board certified, fellowship-trained surgeon with years of experience performing all forms of metabolic surgery. He was the first surgeon in central Florida to perform the cutting-edge sleeve gastrectomy (gastric sleeve), which utilizes advanced laparoscopic techniques requiring only small key hole size incisions.

Because the gastric sleeve is a less invasive surgical procedure than many other forms of metabolic surgery, and can usually be performed in two hours or less, it is often more affordable than other procedures and may be an ideal option for patients seeking to pay out of pocket and/or travel for the procedure.
