  • About Us

    Weight loss surgery is a proven method for reducing weight in patients with clinically severe obesity. It can also result in remarkable improvements in patients' overall health. After bariatric surgery, many chronic diseases and conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, actually go into remission. Patients who have bariatric surgery also have reduced rates of premature death due to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer.

    Deciding to have weight loss surgery is a significant step that requires a permanent lifestyle change. To determine whether weight loss surgery is right for you, please attend one of our free information sessions where you will learn more about our Bariatric Surgery Program, meet our team and receive your application.
