We offer a highly personal approach that treats the whole you during the entire process, from preparing for surgery to supporting you long-term to help keep the weight off for good.

If you have a body mass index (BMI) greater than 40, you may be a candidate for bariatric surgery.

You could also qualify if your BMI is over 35 and you have significant weight-related health problems.

You’ll start by meeting with a bariatric surgeon at your first appointment. Our surgeon is joined by a dedicated bariatric team of physician assistants and nurses as well as:

  • Dieticians for personalized, one-on-one nutrition counseling
  • Patient advocates to help you navigate surgery, financing and
  • Psychologist to help you adjust to your new lifestyle

Bariatric surgery can be life-changing for many, from resolving diabetes to relieving joint pain.
