For the best in minimally invasive weight-loss surgery in San Diego, turn to Olde Del Mar Surgical. Our proven, patient-centric approach is championed and exemplified every day by our experienced and compassionate team of surgeons, nurses, dietitians, and office staff.
Olde Del Mar Surgical is an award-winning medical clinic led by Chief of Surgery Dr. Sunil Bhoyrul, who is also the medical director for weight-loss surgery at Scripps Memorial Hospital and Sharp Coronado Hospital. Dr. Bhoyrul has decades of experience in San Diego weight-loss surgery and helped co-author and edit one of the world’s first textbooks on laparoscopic surgery.
Dr. Pascal Bortz has been a strong addition to the team with his additional focus on robotic surgery. Additionally, our nurse practitioner, Kirsten Goshen, brings with her over a decade of experience in surgical and medical weight loss. Under the leadership of Drs. Bhoyrul and Bortz and FNP Goshen, we are able to specialize in a number of disciplines, including weight-loss surgery, general surgery, robotic surgery, and medical weight-loss programs.
Our most popular weight-loss surgeries in San Diego are gastric bypass and gastric sleeve. Regardless of the procedure, however, we perform most operations laparoscopically (minimally invasive) and under general anesthesia. The surgery usually takes less than an hour.Get Started
Olde Del Mar Surgical also provides additional services along with our other minimally invasive procedures. For example, our laparoscopic and robotic (or robot-assisted) surgery solutions offer best-in-class technological procedures to our patients. These procedures include:
Each surgery includes one year of follow-up care: visits with a clinician and a dietitian, plus counseling and educational resources.
We learned long ago that weight-loss surgery on its own can be a waste of time. Surgery must be followed up by continuing care, check-ups — and check-ins — and the establishment of a regular system of communication and feedback.
To that end, we’ve implemented a system that provides patients with their own online dashboard called Bariatastic! With this system, patients can see all of their health parameters, helping keep them accountable and helping ensure the success of their weight-loss journey.
Surgical procedures require a deep level care, skill, and precision. Olde Del Mar Surgical is committed to providing patients with high-quality patient care that encompasses all of these qualities. We will not hesitate to ensure your experience a positive one.
For patients suffering from obesity and its associated health challenges, weight-loss surgery is an opportunity to improve both the quality and the quantity of life itself. We are experts in helping patients lose weight and overcome many of the health problems associated with obesity: diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and more.
Plus, our complication rate of 1% is well below the national rate of 5%. This positions Olde Del Mar Surgical as a far better choice for weight-loss surgery in San Diego than other clinics both near and far.
Among other benefits, minimally invasive surgery is a surgical procedure that allows for shorter hospital stays than traditional open surgery. Much more important than limiting food intake is the dramatic changes in patients' metabolic and hunger hormones as a direct result of the surgery. This is truly the “secret sauce” behind surgery and the reason why the success of surgery cannot be replicated by simply “going on a diet.”
With our patient’s wellbeing at the forefront of every decision we make regarding their care, we offer a full spectrum of weight-loss surgeries in San Diego.

"I cannot begin to express how grateful I am to Dr. Bhoyrul and his staff, their support, and encouragement are beyond words. The past two years of my life have been amazing and I have totally transformed into the women I have dreamed of being. After having my third child in 1992 I had gained an excess of 70 lbs and for another 16 years I struggled with my weight I was able to lose 30lbs here and there and then as usual gain it back plus some, I did this many times over the years. When I first came to your office I weighed 239 lbs, that was the heaviest I had ever weighed. I just could not control my food portions.”... Read More
"I completely and implicitly trust Dr. Bhoyrul and his entire staff with my life and with my wife's life. We love you guys so much! You're considered our family for life. Anybody thinking about getting this life changing weight loss surgery performed should not even think twice about entrusting Dr. Bhoyrul with it. It'll be the best decision of your life!”
"ZERO “0”… that was the number the nice-looking boys on the Boardwalk at Mission Beach held up when I rode my bike past them, I was 15 years old, and all too well aware of the “0-10” cards that these boys thought it was fun to hold up as girls rode past. Cruel? You bet!
“0”… that number stuck with me throughout my life. Zero was how I felt for more than 40 years. Obese, trying countless diets, pills, shots, protein drinks, hypnosis and starvation that never helped for long. Sure, lose some weight, never enough and then the cruel trick of gaining it back and more.”... Read More
Roni used to weigh over 253 pounds and since his surgery, has lost over 86 pounds! He now weighs 166 pounds and goes to the gym three times a week and does weight training and cardiovascular exercises. He feels the slimmest he’s ever been and couldn’t be happier with his tremendous progress!
Dr. Bhoyrul, NP Kirsten G. , and the rest of the staff are truly amazing! I am almost two years post op now and the entire experience of undergoing weight loss surgery (gastric sleeve) was made stress free thanks to this team. Dr. Bhoyrul is always incredibly attentive, caring, and ensures you are completely at ease. I have never felt more comfortable or in better hands than when seen by him. Kirsten mirrors this energy exactly! They've changed my life for the better and for the first time I have managed to maintain my weight (seventy pounds down from pre op) with ease because of all the knowledge of nutrition and exercise I've gained. I no longer stress about whether or not clothes will fit or feel tired constantly. I have energy like never before and am grateful my health is better than ever. I can't thank them enough for what they've done for me. They are an amazing team and I recommend wholeheartedly.
