Bariatrics & Surgical Weight Loss
Losing weight is a challenge? Losing a lot of weight – and keeping it off – is even harder. Often, it takes expert medical advice and support to help you achieve and maintain the weight loss you desire.
More than 60% of the U.S. population is overweight
About 30% is classified as being obese.
Your Weight Loss Journey
We offer hope to patients who are suffering from obesity, especially those who have or are at risk for other health issues, such as:
- High blood pressure (hypertension)
- Type 2 diabetes
- Sleep apnea and other breathing problems
- Osteoarthritis and back problems
