About Eviva

It is our privilege and joy to be along side you on this critical life journey. We partner with you to maximize healthy weight loss, increase longevity, and improve quality of life.

Eviva has provided state of the art, industry leading surgical and medical care for patients suffering with obesity since 2005. We have performed more than 5000 same day weight loss procedures.

We have pioneered and perfected weight loss procedures and practices to help people live the lives they want:

In 2008, Eviva was first in the world to perform a same day vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG), and given the unique care we pioneered, attained the trademark LapSleeve®. Our excellent results include amount of weight lost, improvement and resolution of related medical problems, and a safety record second to none. The VSG is now the most common metabolic and weight loss surgery performed in the world.
We were first in the world to perform same day gastric bypass in 2009, in this case specifically for treatment of Type 2 Diabetes.

With a true team approach in our ambulatory surgical center (ASC), we control all aspects of patients’ surgical care: housing the very best surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, and surgical techs working in concert, each knowing their critical and specialized role. This translates into seamless and efficient operations, decreased operative time and anesthetic, thus providing less discomfort, and reduced risk for complications.

At Eviva we know what happens to patients through the process of losing weight, is much more than just a surgery. Close, detailed aftercare is essential to assure patients are losing weight in a healthy manner and feeling great. We are proud to be the leader in providing education and supportive aftercare, offering holistic, individualized programs. These include nonsurgical medical weight loss and management, nutrition services, cosmetic procedures, and sleep medicine.
