Our Philosophy

The medical professionals and staff at Michigan Bariatric Institute believe in providing the information you need so you can make an informed decision that bariatric surgery is right for you.

Our Procedures

Michigan Bariatric Institute specializes in four different bariatric surgery options:

Every one of our patients is unique, so the team at Michigan Bariatric Institute will create a personalized plan based on your specific needs.

We perform the most commonly prescribed weight loss surgery (laparoscopic gastric bypass), considered to be the current gold standard of bariatric surgery.

We also offer more specific procedures. Bariatric surgeon Dr. Tallal Zeni of the Michigan Bariatric Institute is one of only a handful of surgeons who perform laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy that provides more permanent weight loss.
