Weight Loss Surgery

Deciding To Make A Change

If you’ve struggled with losing weight and keeping it off, weight loss surgery may be an option to consider. Gastric sleeve surgery promotes weight loss by decreasing hunger and restricting food intake. Surgery for weight loss is not a quick fix but an effective tool that will allow a person living with obesity to lose a significant amount of weight.

Weight loss surgery can improve a patient’s overall quality of life by increasing mobility and enhancing self-image. Surgery for losing weight may also alleviate medical conditions which are often associated with obesity, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, high cholesterol, and arthritis.

The decision to pursue weight loss surgery is an important one that should not be taken lightly. It requires a lifelong commitment by both the patient and the bariatric surgery team. We work with you to help modify behaviors so that you can not only lose weight but also maintain that weight loss long-term.
