General Surgery Information

General surgeons perform surgical procedures for conditions affecting almost any area of the body.

Dr. Hovey performs the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, (laparoscopic or open), and laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (Lap Band.

A Gastric Band procedure is a purely restrictive surgical procedure in which a band is placed around the upper most past of the stomach. This band divides the stomach into two portions, one small and one large portion. Because food is regulated, most patients feel full faster. Food digestion occurs through the normal digestive and absorption process. Attend a seminar to learn more about Bariatric Surgery.
