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 postop 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.
Of course, that doesn’t mean that the decision to have bariatric surgery should be taken without a great deal of thought and discussion with loved ones, friends and Dr. Higa. We encourage you to browse our website and schedule a consultation with us to understand whether bariatric surgery is the right option for you.
The first step toward a new and healthy life is a call to Dr. Higa's office to schedule a consultation. You will have the opportunity to find out if you qualify for bariatric surgery and you can discuss your surgical options with Dr. Higa.
We look forward to helping you in this new journey.
