Weight Loss Surgery
Considering weight loss surgery? It may be for you if you have not found success with diet, exercise, and/or medication. Weight loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, has proven to be a safe, effective option for our patients, who typically lose between 55 to 70 percent of their excess body weight. Our comprehensive evaluation, pre-surgical education, and post-surgical support ensures you achieve your weight loss goals.
