Welcome to Highland Clinic Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery is the surgical treatment of morbid obesity, which is defined as being roughly 90 pounds or more above one’s ideal body weight.  Dr. Barnes is an expert in the two most common operations performed for weight loss, the laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and the laparoscopic gastric bypass. Both of these operations result in significant weight loss and dramatically improve most people’s health. He also specializes in revisional surgery for failed Lap Bands and stomach staplings.  Dr. Barnes performs other advanced laparoscopic procedures as well, including surgery for gallbladder problems, acid reflux, and all types of hernias.
