Weight Loss and Bariatric Surgery
Did know that about one-quarter of American adults are classified as obese and the numbers continue to grow? If you have committed to a healthy diet and exercise routine but have not been able to meet your weight loss goals, it may be time to consider a medical approach to weight management.
At Banner Health, our goal is to provide you with a healthier and longer life. We are committed to your care and are able to provide the resources you’ll need to achieve and maintain your weight loss goals. Our expert team can help you implement the lifestyle changes necessary to achieve sustainable weight loss, enabling you to improve your health.
Our surgical weight loss procedures are minimally invasive – meaning less pain, a quicker hospital stay and a shorter recovery. We offer several surgical weight loss options including Adjustable Gastric Band, Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy, Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass and the Duodenal Switch. Learn more about our surgical options.
In addition to surgical options, our Weight Loss Centers, located at Banner Gateway Medical Center and Banner Estrella Medical Center, provide a multi-disciplinary approach, incorporating a broad range of medical services for adults who are somewhat overweight to morbidly obese. Our skilled physicians evaluate each patient and provide the individualized care that is crucial to effective and long-lasting treatment success. These centers also provide education and support groups on topics such as nutrition, exercise and psychology for all patients.
This unique, comprehensive weight-loss program addresses the medical, behavioral and nutritional needs of our patients. Our centers offer three programs including Non-Surgical Weight Loss, Bariatric Surgery and Back of Track. Learn more about our Weight Loss Centers.
