Thank you for visiting our Bariatric Program

Boone Hospital Center's bariatric program uses a multi-disciplinary approach to access and evaluate each patient. Dr. James Pit, DO and Dr. Nicole Spencer, DO perform laparascopic adjustable gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy, and bypass procedures.

Gastric Bands

These silicone adjustable bands are placed around the upper portion of the stomach to restrict the amount of food that can be consumed, and to create a longer feeling of satiety.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

During the vertical sleeve gastrectomy, the stomach is restricted by stapling and dividing it vertically. Approximately 60% of the stomach is removed, so you feel full more quickly.

Gastric Bypass

The laparoscopic gastric bypass consists of separating the stomach into two sections using rows of staples, then dividing the stomach surgically.

Bariatric Revisions

This is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to treat patients who regain weight after gastric bypass surgery.

Robotic Bariatric Surgery

This is a form of sleeve gastrectomy and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgeries that utilize robotic assistance.
