About Bariatric Surgery

If you've struggled with extra pounds, we can help you see what underlying factors may be causing them and choose the steps to reach your ideal weight.

Morbid obesity is typically defined by using the BMI or Body Mass Index, which is a calculation based on height and weight. Those with morbid obesity have a BMI greater than 35 and may be eligible for weight loss surgery.

And, we don't stop caring after surgery. To help you maintain a healthy lifestyle we provide nutritional coaching, support groups for band and bypass surgery and follow-up visits and counseling.
