What is Bariatric Surgery?
Weight loss surgery, also known as “bariatric” surgery, is a unique field of medicine in which surgical procedures are used to induce dramatic weight loss as a treatment for the life-threatening health conditions and risks related to obesity.

After surgery, patients enjoy a new lifestyle and self-image — free from the barriers of obesity. More importantly, our patients experience the positive health benefits this surgery can bring to those who choose it: substantially lower risks of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, stroke, sleep apnea, depression, heartburn (reflux) and back and joint pain. You can truly enjoy a new life with fewer health concerns.

It is our goal to assure you find this optimal weight loss success. We can even coordinate with your primary care physician to provide personalized nutrition counseling and exercise support.
