Dr. Henry's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Henry "Dr. David Henry is a fellowship-trained, board certified, minimally invasive, bariatric, robotic, and general surgeon. He completed fellowship training in bariatric, advanced laparoscopic, and robotic surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), one of the best programs in the country. Dr. Henry specializes in performing surgery using very small incisions, which allows for patients to have the quickest recovery. He also specializes in bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery). He performs the laparoscopic roux-en-Y gastric bypass, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, laparoscopic gastric banding, and laparoscopic bariatric surgery revisions. Dr. Henry performs surgery of the gallbladder, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, hemorrhoids, spleen, pancreas, thyroid gland, parathyroid glands, breast, and skin and soft tissues. He repairs hernias (inguinal, ventral, umbilical, incisional, and diaphragmatic/hiatal) using both laparoscopic and open techniques. Dr. Henry performs upper GI endoscopy (EGD) and colonoscopy. He is also well trained in the use of the da Vinci robot. Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) provides great benefits to patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 35 or higher. Many patients lose more than 100 lbs after surgery and keep the weight off. Many patients see improvement or resolution of hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, arthritis, asthma, depression, polycystic ovarian syndrome, infertility, and many other conditions. Bariatric surgery can help to prevent heart disease and many types of cancer. Many patients live years longer, due to bariatric surgery. Patients also see an improved quality of life, as they are now able to exercise more easily and have more energy to play with kids, grandkids, and friends. Read more at asmbs.org/patients/benefits-of-bariatric-surgery. Bariatric surgery is not new; it has been around for 60 years! Advanced laparoscopic techniques, using specialized equipment, are now used. Surgery is done with small incisions and usually takes less than two hours. The patient is asleep throughout the surgery and usually stays in the hospital for two days. Obese people have a 50-100% higher risk of premature death compared to people with a healthy weight. Dieting alone has very poor long-term resolution of morbid obesity - most people who lose weight on a diet end up gaining the weight back. Most patients after bariatric surgery, however, lose a lot of weight and keep it off. Bariatric surgery is covered by most insurance plans. Call Dr. Henry's office at (808)521-1300 to schedule an appointment, attend a free bariatric information session at Castle Medical Center or a neighboring island (castle-med.org/cgi-bin/class-group-n.cgi?18), or visit alohasurgery.com for more information. Dr. Henry will be happy to discuss your options and help you to decide if bariatric surgery is right for you. He also treats colon disorders, hernias, hemorrhoids, gallbladder disease, and other diseases related to general surgery."
