Obesity is one of the most common and severe conditions afflicting a growing number of American adults and youth. The Center for Metabolic and Obesity Surgery offers safe and proven obesity treatments such as bariatric surgery to counter this serious health challenge. The Center is headed by Dr. Wiljon W. Beltre, who holds a board certification in general surgery from the prestigious American Board of Surgery.
Dr. Beltre’s practice is committed to helping obese individuals attain their weight loss goals in a scientific and customized way, using cutting edge surgical techniques and procedures. Dr. Beltre is an experienced bariatric surgeon providing the latest weight loss procedures. At present, he is the only surgeon in Seminole County offering all four major forms of advanced laparoscopic metabolic and bariatric surgery.
These include gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, biliopancreatic diversion (with or without duodenal switch), and gastric band, as well as revision surgery. Patients in Orlando, Tampa, Altamonte Springs, Central Florida, and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive weight loss procedures from Dr. Beltre.
