Surgical Weight Loss (Bariatrics)
Our Surgical Weight Loss team understands the health risks and lifestyle
challenges associated with obesity and have been able to assist individuals
in preventing, improving, or even eliminating health conditions such as
type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, or obstructive sleep apnea. Our
team of surgeons have performed over 3,000 bariatric surgeries with a
constant focus on quality outcomes.
Customers place their trust in our program and our team takes that seriously
which led to our program's independent decision to seek accreditation
by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement
Program (MBSAQIP). Accreditation requires a rigorous review process in
which a center must prove that established standards of practice are being
followed for patient safety. Our accredited center reports all bariatric
cases and outcomes to a MBSAQIP database.
Our program also is designated as a Blue Distinction Center for Bariatric
Surgery which allows customers to choose a high-quality program.
We also offer 24 hour on-call bariatric surgeon availability as well as
24 hour on-call bariatric nurse.
We have a very active Facebook page, too. Visit us there!
Medical weight loss: another alternative
Medical weight loss is a supervised weight loss program in which the individual
must meet with their family doctor and dietitian for a specific number
of months. During this time, the individual must diet, exercise and prepare
themselves for surgery. Insurances require the individual to maintain
or lose weight during this time.
