Dr Kuri currently offers three different weight loss surgery procedures. These include Lap-Band Surgery, Gastric Sleeve Surgery, and the Intragastric Balloon Procedure. Each procedure has pros and cons
depending upon your weight loss goals and personal health.
Dr Pedro Kuri is well known for being a pioneer of the Lap-Band System and has been doing the procedure for the past 18 years. While the Lap-Band is generally Dr Kuris #1 choice for weight loss, he has begun to do the Gastric Sleeve for patients with morbid obesity, and in cases where a more aggressive approach for weight loss is needed.
In addition to the Lap Band and Gastric Sleeve, Dr Kuri also performs the Intragastric Balloon procedure for weight loss. Dr Kuri has been performing the Intra-Gastric Balloon procedure for many years prior to the recent approval by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Patients from the United States are now eligible for the Intra-Gastric Balloon procedure. Dr Kuri performs all surgeries himself accompanied by his surgical staff.
