Expert Surgeon. Natural Results.
Dr. Victor Gonzalez, MD, FACS, is a Board-Certified General Surgeon specializing in General Surgery and Bariatric Surgery using advanced minimally invasive techniques. Minimally invasive surgery, also called laparoscopic surgery, is surgery using several quarter-inch to half-inch incisions to gain access to the organs of the abdomen. These incisions are made to allow Dr. Gonzalez to place a camera and instruments into the abdomen to complete the procedure.
The benefits of using these small incisions rather than one large one are: less pain, quicker recovery and return to normal activity, a shorter hospital stay, and a less noticeable scar. Bariatric surgery, also known as weight-loss surgery or obesity surgery, is surgery designed to cause a significant and long-lasting weight loss in severely obese patients.
