We offer a range of advanced bariatric surgery procedures designed to suit your individual needs. Our highly skilled surgeons specialize in the following procedures:
Gastric bypass surgery is a proven and effective weight loss procedure that helps you achieve sustainable results. During this procedure, the stomach is divided into a smaller upper pouch, which restricts food intake, and a larger lower pouch, which reduces calorie absorption. Our experienced surgeons perform gastric bypass surgery using minimally invasive techniques, ensuring faster recovery and minimal scarring.
Sleeve gastrectomy, also known as gastric sleeve surgery, involves reducing the size of the stomach by removing a portion of it. This procedure helps to control hunger and limit food intake, leading to significant weight loss. Our skilled surgeons utilize the latest advancements in laparoscopic surgery to perform sleeve gastrectomy, ensuring a safe and effective procedure with reduced risk and shorter hospital stays.
Gastric banding, also referred to as adjustable gastric band surgery, involves placing a silicone band around the upper part of the stomach to create a smaller pouch. This adjustable band can be tightened or loosened as needed to regulate food intake. Our expert surgeons specialize in gastric banding procedures, providing you with a long-term solution for weight loss.

My name is Denise. I started my weight-loss journey in December of 2014 by visiting Dr. Chin. It was ten months of doctors’ appointments, weigh-ins, and medical tests. But I was focused and determined. Finally, my surgery date came. I was sleeved in October 2015, and it was the best decision I have ever made for myself. I was 57 years old at the time. I asked my surgeon, Dr. Chin, if I was too old for the surgery, and he said, “No one is too old to get healthy.” He was so very right. I was 310 pounds at my heaviest, pre-surgery. I was pre-diabetic, and had high blood pressure. My back, knees, and ankles hurt most of the time, and I was always short of breath. Those were just the medical conditions I had because of my weight. I was self-conscious and depressed. I was very unhappy. Surgery was a piece of cake (no pun intended). I was walking on the treadmill within two days. Soon, I was amazed at the transformation I was having, both in my weight loss and with my attitude towards food. As the weight loss kept happening, I was gaining my health back. I am no longer on blood pressure medicine, and I am no longer pre-diabetic. My knees, back, and ankles don’t hurt anymore because I am not carrying so much weight. I can walk and move around without being short of breath. My confidence has returned, and I am so much happier now that I am 100 pounds lighter. I swim a mile five days a week, and walk three to four miles every day, and I enjoy it. There are so many accomplishments that have come from losing weight like shopping in the regular size section, fitting in any chair, crossing my legs, not having to ask for an extension on the airplane, and the list goes on. The only regret I have is not having this surgery sooner. I would like to thank Dr. Chin and all of the staff involved in my life saving/changing surgery.
Dr. Jason Moy performed by bariatric surgery last month. I did enormous study on the surgery including watching 90 hours of video on YouTube. Concerned about the surgery Dr. Jason Moy had an excellent bedside manner. He is an excellent listener and very patient. His staff is impeccable. His confidence shown in me and the procedure remedied my nerves. After surgery I was expecting some of the maladies I learned about after bariatric surgery. To my surprise and because of an excellent surgery, I had minimal pain off pain meds next day, no sore throat or other irritable symptoms. I knew I was fortunate. Fortunate to have an excellent doctor and surgeon. If you plan to change you life and go in a better direction and get bariatric surgery I would expect you would want the best surgeon and doctor available. I suggest you call Dr. Jason Moy. I am sure there are other great doctors but if you are looking for a sure thing then it is Dr. Jason Moy.
I am extremely grateful for the surgery Dr.Brian Chin was able to complete. My health and self-esteem has improved since my surgery. Dr. Brian Chin is an amazing doctor and I recommend that everyone suffering from obesity and depression go see him and know that he will take care of.
I underwent Gastric sleeve surgery with Dr. Chin not long ago. I had a wonderful experience. The process for this Bariatric weight-loss surgery was made very smooth by Dr. Chin's great staff and the preparation and advice from Dr. Chin. I would highly recommend Dr. Chin to anybody thinking about having a life changing weight-loss surgery, he's one of the best Bariatric Doctors/Surgeons in the East Bay.
