Bariatric Surgery is an ideal solution for those struggling with obesity and seeking to reduce the size of their stomach.

Dr. Stewart E. Rendon brings his expertise in weight loss surgery to Healthpointe clinics throughout Southern California including Orange County, Los Angeles County, Riverside County, and San Bernardino County.

Bariatric Surgery is an ideal solution for those struggling with obesity and seeking to reduce the size of their stomach.

Healthpointe’s Cosmetic Laser Institute in Anaheim is offering various treatment options for patients with a body mass index exceeding 40 or 35 with comorbities. Bariatric procedures may also be recommended for people who have failed to establish a sufficient health and diet program and are experiencing obesity-related symptoms and conditions. Bariatric surgery encompasses several treatments and procedures including, but not limited to, gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, and adjustable gastric bands.

Weight loss surgeries are commonly divided into two subdivisions: restrictive, and combination. Restrictive surgeries reduce the size of the stomach to limit the amount of intake, while combination weight management surgeries combine restrictive and malabsorptive procedures to alter the process of digestion.

Former Director of Bariatric Surgery at Loma Linda University, Dr. Rendon will be performing all forms of weight loss procedures including restrictive surgeries, such as lap band and gastric sleeve, and malabsorptive combination procedures such as gastric bypass. Having earned his Doctorate of Medicine from the University of California, Los Angeles (where he formed the foundation of his future career at Healthpointe) and completed a fellowship at the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University, specializing in Bariatric Surgery, Dr. Rendon offers a plethora of experience and information to Healthpointe and its patients.
