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. U.S. Commerce Association also named him as one of the best Weight Loss Management Physicians. 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 obesity. 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.
The SAFE Sleeve procedure is a trademarked, patent-pending technique for the way the vertical sleeve gastrectomy procedure is performed. The SAFE Sleeve technique creates a safety pocket increasing the space between the organs and allows the remaining tissue to be undisturbed. Dr. Umbach and Blossom Bariatrics surgeons are specially trained in the SAFE Sleeve technique, and no other bariatric surgeon in the country performs the SAFE Sleeve operation.
Blossom Bariatrics is also offering the FDA-approved non-surgical gastric balloon procedure. In fact, Dr. Umbach performed Nevada’s first gastric balloon procedure in 2016. 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 gastric balloon procedure can be the right choice.
“It is very exciting for us and our clients to be able to offer these and other procedures,” Dr. Umbach stated. “This gives people several options for weight loss, while achieving permanent results.”
Other services offered include gastric banding, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, gastric sleeve resection and revisional surgery. Blossom Bariatrics uses special protocols to achieve exceptional pain control for clients, which increase their comfort.
More than just weight loss, these changes offer a new lifestyle, and Blossom Bariatrics supports its clients in many ways. One of its partnerships is with Foodie Fit, which offers bariatric friendly meal plans. Support groups and the Let’s Get Moving program also add to the success of permanent weight loss.
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 is located in a brand-new state-of-the-art facility featuring an all-in-one approach for bariatric clients. Its center includes in-house blood work, EKG, ultrasound capability, stress echo testing, medication dispensing, IV therapy and vitamin injections.
