Welcome to ThinnerTimes!

Dr. Callery and his staff and associates strive to provide excellent, up to date surgical care and personal attention. Convenient scheduling and good communication with your primary care doctor and other consultants is of utmost importance to us. We believe that thorough education of the patient and family provides the basis for a smooth surgical course and long-term weight control.

We approach clinically severe obesity as a genetically based condition that is amplified by a variety of dietary, social, psychological, and environmental factors. Diet, exercise, and counseling programs alone are ineffective for many patients.

Gastric bypass surgery and vertical sleeve gastrectomy reduce stomach volume, decrease appetite stimulating hormone levels, and increase pancreatic insulin secretion. Gastric bypass also causes food to bypass the duodenum which may further improve diabetic control. Lap Band® improves satiety and decreases the rate of food intake. Thus gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, and Lap-Band® surgery offer tools, that when combined with behavior modification, psychological adjustment, and reasonable exercise, can result in much more significant and lasting reduction in both weight and weight related illness.
