Weight Loss Surgery in St. Louis

If you live in the St. Louis region and struggle with obesity and haven’t been able to lose weight by diet and exercise, you may want to consider bariatric weight loss surgery.

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?

For weight loss surgery to be a viable option, patients must meet the following criteria:

You're over the age of 18 and 100 pounds or more over your ideal weight and have one of the following conditions:

  1. A body mass index (BMI) between 35 and 40, along with
    • Diabetes
    • Sleep Apnea
