Weight Loss Surgery

Deciding to Make a Change! 

surgical weight loss patient The decision to consider weight loss surgery is an important one that should not be taken lightly. It is a lifelong commitment by both the patient and the bariatric surgery team. Bariatric sleeve surgery promotes weight loss by decreasing hunger and restricting food intake. After surgery, your bariatric surgeon and support team will provide you with additional resources to help you keep the weight off. 

Surgery for weight loss is not a quick fix but an effective tool that will allow people who are obese to lose a significant amount of weight. Gastric sleeve surgery is the first step in a lifelong journey back to a healthy weight and lifestyle. Medical weight management provides you with the tools and support needed to achieve your weight loss goals.
