Dr. Thomas Umbach is a nationally recognized, board-certified and fellowship-trained bariatric surgeon. Newsweek and Time magazines, as well as New Economy Best Health Care Consultants, Best Bariatrics Surgeon and Best Medical Tourism Provider, have recognized him as one of the nation’s top bariatric surgeons. Together with a compassionate staff, Blossom Bariatrics attracts clients worldwide with unparalleled pre- and post-operative support, a state-of-the-art facility and world-class expertise.
Dr. Umbach was first drawn to bariatrics after discovering the potential it had in creating significant weight loss for the obese. With weight loss, the effects of diabetes, joint pain, depression and other health problems are greatly reduced or eliminated. With compassion and skill, Dr. Umbach is one of the most trusted and respected bariatric surgeons.
Blossom Bariatrics is now offering the FDA-approved non-surgical gastric balloon procedure. In fact, Dr. Umbach performed Nevada’s first gastric balloon procedure in March. For those people who have been searching for an effective weight-loss solution but either do not qualify for or simply don’t want to undergo bariatric surgery, the new gastric balloon procedure can be the right choice.
“It is very exciting for us and our clients to be able to offer the gastric balloon,” Dr. Umbach stated. “This gives people a non-surgical option for weight loss, while achieving permanent results with very little downtime.”
Other services offered include gastric bypass, gastirc sleeve and revisional surgery. Blossom Bariatrics uses special protocols to achieve exceptional pain control for clients, which increase their comfort.
Preparation for weight-loss surgery involves multiple steps. After the initial informational seminar, clients meet directly with the doctor. At this comprehensive evaluation, each patient receives an individualized list of tasks to complete. Clients then meet with their registered dieticians for an hour evaluation. Additional dietary education includes a three-hour class covering the basics of nutrition and successful eating habits.
More than just weight loss, these changes offer a new lifestyle, and Blossom Bariatrics support its clients in many ways. One of its newest partnerships is with Meal Prep Las Vegas. This service prepares healthy meals from a selection of all-organic, gluten-, GMO- and preservative-free meats, vegetables and starches to create delicious meals delivered every Friday. Meals are microwaveable and can be served for one or two people.
Dr. Umbach offers his clients his personal cell phone number to call him anytime, day or night. He wants his clients to be able to reach him 24/7 with any questions or concerns they have before or after surgery. The center has recently relocated to a brand-new state-of-the-art facility featuring an all-in-one approach for bariatric clients. Its new building includes in-house blood work, EKG, ultrasound capability, stress echo testing, medication dispensing, IV therapy and vitamin injections.
