Today, approximately one in 25 Americans is morbidly obese and many deal with weight-related health conditions such as hypertension,
Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea and/or high cholesterol. In addition, there may be psychological consequences such as lowered self-esteem, anxiety and depression.
For the majority of the morbidly obese, diet and exercise may not lead to significant, continuous weight loss. Fortunately, bariatric surgery may provide a better alternative.
Our Center for Surgical Weight Loss is a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence with Blue Distinction certification, and provides supportive, understanding and compassionate care for the unique needs of obese individuals.
Highlights of our surgical weight loss program
-Multiple surgical options (Roux-en Y Gastric Bypass, Sleeve Gastrectomy, Gastric Band)
-Non-surgical option (Orbera)
-Seamless referral process
-Pre- and post-operative nutrition support with a registered dietitian specially trained in bariatrics
-Dedicated recovery unit
