Surgical Weight Loss Options

For those who have significant weight concerns, bariatric surgery is the most effective way to lose weight and reduce the risk of obesity-related health problems, including heart disease and diabetes. Bariatric weight loss is a good option for anyone with a 35+ BMI who has been unable to lose weight through diet and exercise alone. There are many types of surgical weight loss procedures and having a general understanding of how weight loss surgery works and why one procedure is better than another for certain reasons will help you understand your surgeon’s recommendations. Learn more about our weight loss surgery options, which include gastric band, gastric bypass and gastric sleeve surgery as well as body contouring, and what it takes to qualify.
