Bariatric Surgery in Tucson, AZ

Dr. Guillermo Higa is a board certified general surgeon and fellowship trained bariatric surgeon. He offers surgical and non-surgical intervention for common conditions including obesity, gallbladder issues, hernias and poorly controlled GERD. With over 20 years of surgical experience and thousands of general and bariatric surgeries performed, Dr. Higa offers the knowledge and experience to make your surgical procedure as safe and effective as possible.

Bariatric surgery (gastric sleeve, gastric bypass and more) is currently the only long-term effective treatment for patients suffering from obesity. And while surgery may seem like a drastic option, the medical issues and lifestyle limitations caused by obesity create both tangible and intangible problems.

Indeed, the most common feedback we hear from our post-op patients is that they wish they had done it sooner.

And while they may look better, the true victory is that many of the diseases associated with morbid obesity have improved or resolved entirely and they can perform activities that would once have been considered impossible.

Common Nutritional Deficiencies After Bariatric Surgery

One of the most problematic complications we see after bariatric surgery revolves around patients who do not meet their nutritional requirements. Patients lose weight because of a significantly restricted caloric intake, meaning they will be ingesting and using fewer vitamins and minerals. Levels of specific vitamins and minerals are more affected than others. As such, patients must work with their practice to create a supplementation plan based on the procedure performed and the results of their blood panels taken periodically […]
