Mercy Bariatric Center - South in St. Louis, MO provides bariatric surgery options that can help you successfully reach a healthier weight and reduce your risk of developing health complications associated with obesity.

Surgical weight loss may also provide significant health benefits and allow you to:

  • Feel better, breath better, move better and have more energy
  • Reduce your cholesterol levels
  • Improve or resolve type 2 diabetes
  • Decrease your risk of heart disease, stroke, fatty liver disease, osteoarthritis and gastroesophageal reflux

What is Bariatric Surgery?

If you struggle with obesity and haven’t been able to lose weight by diet and exercise, you may want to consider bariatric surgical weight loss.

Bariatric surgery falls into two categories:

  • Restrictive, which reduces the stomach's size and capacity
  • Malabsorption, which reduces the stomach’s ability to absorb calories

Bariatric surgery is just one aspect of Mercy’s commitment to your health. In consultation with your primary care physician, we leverage the expertise of psychologists, dietitians, physical therapists, cardiologists, pulmonologists, surgeons and other experts to ensure your success.

Am I Eligible for Bariatric Surgery?

Patients with a body mass index of 30 or above may be candidates for weight loss surgery.
