Register for Obesity Surgery Center Inc email updates
As the founder of the OBESITY SURGERY CENTER, Dr. Osvaldo Anez has performed over 4,000 bariatric procedures. With vast experience performing the mini-incision Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGBP), Dr. Anez recently expanded his service offering to include the Adjustable Gastric Band procedure. The center excels in comprehensive patient support, providing robust aftercare that includes counseling by bariatric dieticians, dedicated physician assistants and nurses, monthly support groups, and web page service. Additionally, the center has an extensive panel of physicians such as cardiologists, pulmonologists, endocrinologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, and physical therapists to whom it refers patients, when necessary.
Throughout the past twenty six years, Dr. Anez perfected his technique for open RYGBP and ultimately developed the mini-incision RYGBP which demonstrates numerous benefits:
Incision approximately 3.5” to 4.0” long (less pain and hernias)
Procedure completed in 30 to 40 minutes (less complications)
Hospital stay is 2 to 3 days
Procedure is reversible
Cost is lower
Notably, the Obesity Surgery Center's broad experience and superior results were instrumental in the qualification of FAIR OAKS HOSPITAL as a BARIATRIC CENTER OF EXCELLENCE, certified by the AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR METABOLIC AND BARIATRIC SURGERY.
Morbid obesity is a serious and increasingly common disease that represents a severe handicap and causes major health issues: Type II Diabetes Mellitus, Sleep Apnea, Hypertension, High Cholesterol and Triglycerides, Metabolic Syndrome, and Arthritis. The RYGBP offers the most consistent, long-term weight loss and the highest resolution rate of co-morbidities. Still the most commonly performed bariatric procedure, RYGBP has been performed for over 40 years and continues to be the “GOLD STANDARD” for bariatric surgery.
