For many patients, losing weight can be more than just a challenge. When previous weight loss attempts have not succeeded or health problems make it difficult to lose weight, your patients have another option: Bariatric surgery at Owensboro Health.
To serve a growing need in the region, Owensboro Health has established the Owensboro Health Surgical Weight Loss Center and bariatric surgery program. The center and program are lead by one of the region’s most skilled surgeon Dr. Ravi Alapati.
Dr. Alapati is a board-certified general surgeon with advanced fellowship training in bariatric surgery. Dr. Alapati offers two types of bariatric surgery, Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass, and Sleeve Gastrectomy.
