What Do I Do If I Don’t Have Insurance Coverage?

Our competitive pricing gives you access to our world-renowned facility — which is part of the number one bariatric program in Central Florida — and the benefit of our leading bariatric surgeons, Dr. Dennis Smith and Dr. Amit Taggar caring for you with a personalized plan.

Why Choose AdventHealth Celebration?


Our teams are accredited with the MBSAQIP. The Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP).

All AdventHealth Weight Loss and Bariatric Surgery locations across Central Florida are officially recognized by The Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) as comprehensive centers.

All four locations have met stringent criteria for staffing, training and facility infrastructure and protocols for care, ensuring our ability to support patients with severe obesity.

The Benefits of Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive surgical treatment using the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System™, and it’s our preferred surgical method at AdventHealth Celebration — just one more reason to choose us for your weight loss surgery procedure.

Here are some of the many benefits of robotic surgery, compared to traditional open surgery:

  • Incisions are smaller with robotic surgery, providing a quicker return to normal daily activities
  • Increased magnification of the surgery site to 10-times the size, combined with easily maneuverable robotic arms and instruments, which provides superior control and improved functional outcomes
  • Less risk of blood loss, practically eliminating the need for blood transfusions
  • Less time under anesthesia
  • Minimal pain
  • Shorter hospital stay; most patients leave within 24 hours
  • Quicker return to work

The Choice Is Yours

Our bariatric care team will get to know you, your unique health history and your goals to determine which procedure could be right for you. At AdventHealth Celebration, we offer weight loss procedures, including:

  • Sleeve gastrectomy (VSG)
  • Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RNY)
  • Duodenal switch
  • Single Anastomosis Duodenal Switch (SADI)
  • Bariatric surgery revision

Bariatric procedures are designed to decrease the amount of consumed food and reduce the digestion and absorption of calories. Your care team will help guide you through your options that best fit your lifestyle.

Bariatric Support Groups

Research suggests that support group participation is linked to better weight-loss results after bariatric surgery. After all, your weight-loss surgery is just one part of your progress. Joining a support group means having a shoulder to lean on every step of the way.

Bariatric support groups are helpful both before and after bariatric surgery. They provide a safe environment to discuss weight loss, increase knowledge, learn success tips and discuss challenges or barriers to success. Our support groups are facilitated by our bariatric coordinators and offer guest speakers throughout the year. Family members and loved ones are sometimes invited to join, too.

Our Celebration Facebook support group can help you:

  • Adjust to lifestyle changes
  • Build a positive self-image
  • Build healthy habits for each stage of your journey
  • Decide whether surgery is the right choice for you
  • Maintain your progress after surgery
