Gastric sleeve, VSG, gastric bypass, RNY, SIPS, SADI, Lap Band, gastric balloon, Orbera, Spatz, you name it!
Weight loss surgery options can be confusing, as there are many different programs, procedures, and medications a patient can consider! Some of these are even just different names for the same thing. For example, did you know that a VSG is the same thing as a gastric sleeve, a gastric bypass is the same thing as a Roux-en-Y, a gastric band is the same thing as a Lap Band, and a SIPS is the same thing as a SADI! We do our best to clarify the confusion so that you can make the right decision on your path forward in losing weight and improving your health. Dr. Trace Curry and Dr. James Augusta will explain all of your procedure interests in a way that will help you fully understand the surgery, procedure, or medication you are considering.
Our JourneyLite Weight Loss Physicians/Surgeons
Weight Loss Surgery
We offer powerful surgical weight loss options such as gastric sleeve (VSG), gastric bypass, Lap Band, and SIPS (SADI). Surgical options have been proven to provide the highest amount of weight loss and the highest long-term success rate. Get your diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and sleep apnea under control!
Weight Loss Medications
There are several medications that can help patients lose weight without any procedures at all. If you are trying to avoid surgery, or even if you have already had a surgical weight loss procedure and want to maximize your results, we have the team for you!
Although most patients succeed with surgical weight loss, not everyone does. If you have had a past procedure and are looking for revisional weight loss surgery, JourneyLite has an experienced team that can help. We offer gastric sleeve and gastric band conversions to gastric bypass or SIPS/SADI.
About JourneyLite Surgery Center

The center is dedicated to the care of weight loss surgery, plastics, spine, and pain management patients. JourneyLite is known for many “firsts” in the mid-west, such as the first outpatient same-day gastric sleeve surgery. Dr. Curry and JourneyLite published one of the largest series on the safety and efficacy of same-day discharge gastric sleeve procedures, showing equal results to patients who were kept for 1-2 days in the hospital afterwards.
