What is Bariatric Surgery?

Bariatrics is simply the field of medicine focused on obesity, its causes, prevention and treatments. Bariatric surgery is divided into two different approaches to helping treat obesity: restrictive, where the stomach's size and capacity are reduced, and malabsorption, where the stomachs ability to absorb calories and nutrients is reduced.

At Mercy Bariatrics our team of leading experts is ready to help you meet your weight loss and health goals. We provide a variety of bariatric procedures including gastric sleeve, gastric banding and gastric bypass. In addition to your primary care physician, we call on our psychologists, dietitians, physical therapists, cardiologists, pulmonologists and surgeons to ensure your success. Bariatric surgery is just one part of your lifelong commitment to better health-but we're here to help.
