Bariatric Surgery

bariatric surgeryWe understand the emotional challenges of being overweight and will support your weight loss journey for life.

Obesity has become a major health issue in this country. We understand the physical and emotional challenges of living with obesity. Not only can obesity become debilitating, but it can increase your risk for other serious diseases like cancer, heart disease, arthritis and diabetes. 

When diet and exercise are not enough to help you lose weight, weight loss or metabolic surgery may be an appropriate option. Our bariatric team will assess your individual situation and tailor a comprehensive treatment plan that is right for you. 

Our bariatric surgery clinic has three full-time surgeons who perform the four procedures approved for weight-loss surgery including gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy, duodenal switch and Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass. No other metabolic surgery program in the region offers you the option of all four procedures.
