Bariatric Clinic Comparison
What sets IBI Healthcare Institute apart?

Each person who comes through our doors is treated like family and we look at all possible treatment options to find the best fit for each patient. There is no “one-size-fits-all” mentality among our highly-skilled professionals.
The IBI HealthCare Institute approach is to tailor a plan that is as unique as each individual, to address their needs, particular circumstances, and health-related conditions. We endeavor to set our patients up for success in their weight loss journey and support them every step of the way.
IBI Offers Exceptional Qualifications and Experience
The weight loss industry has become big business and it can be frustrating to determine fact from fiction when wading through all the options. When choosing a bariatric clinic and team to perform a surgical or non-surgical weight loss procedure, it is important to conduct due diligence.
Many bariatric clinics may be offering weight loss surgery and/or endoscopic weight loss procedures but do not have the experience or expertise in performing them. The end results will be determined not only by the surgeon’s expertise but also by the level of support and care received before, during, and after the procedure.
Ask Yourself Before Choosing a Bariatric Clinic

Expertise and Highly-skilled Professional Team
The field of bariatric surgery and non-surgical weight loss has experienced many impressive advancements in recent years. Our expert providers at IBI Healthcare Institute have kept up with these exciting changes and the newer cutting-edge technologies.
The collective resume of the IBI Healthcare Professionals is impressive and the level of knowledge available to our patients ensures that they are provided the highest quality of care using the technique that will deliver them the best results.
IBI Healthcare’s CEO and founder Dr. Chris Ibiunkle is not only an expert in bariatric surgical procedures but is also one of few surgeons in the United States who also specializes in endoscopic procedures. He was the first doctor to perform an endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG) weight loss procedure in the state of Georgia and a pioneer in non-surgical weight loss (ESG) in the southeast region.
IBI Healthcare Institute offers both Surgical and Non-Surgical Solutions for Weight Loss
IBI Healthcare Institute offers bariatric surgery such as Gastric Bypass, Gastric Sleeve (VSG), and Duodenal Switch These surgeries have been performed for years and have a good track record for significant weight loss for obese patients.
Also offered, are less invasive techniques that do not require surgery and are also suitable for individuals who have lower BMI numbers or patients that are in poor health and do not qualify for bariatric surgery.
These less invasive techniques are performed using an endoscope which is a medical tool that resembles a hollow flexible tube that is outfitted with a camera. The camera allows the surgeon to see what they are doing as they perform the procedure. The camera projects a “real-time” video feed onto a monitor. The hollow portion of the endoscope also allows for other special surgical tools to be lowered down and used to help carry out the procedure.
Endoscopic weight loss procedures such as the Orbera® Gastric Balloon, Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG), and Gastric Bypass Revision are all performed using an endoscope that is lowered down the patient’s throat. There are no incisions required and patients are not required to stay in the hospital.
IBI Healthcare Institute Proven Results
Neither weight loss surgery nor any weight loss procedure is going to magically change your life. Losing weight takes dedication, patience, determination, and just plain hard work. Most patients are overweight because they were unable to lose it themselves without any help.
The IBI Healthcare professionals are your partners so long-term weight loss is not out of reach. It can be achieved by anyone who makes a commitment to make the lifestyle changes necessary and is willing to take advantage of all the support that is accessible to them.
