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

Our Patients

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
  • Heart disease
  • Other metabolic conditions

Your weight is the result of many factors. Some of them, like family history, you cannot change. But you can change some of the factors, such as lifestyle and eating habits.
