Weight loss, or bariatric, surgery has gained popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness treating significant obesity and associated medical problems. Through surgery, there is now hope of permanent weight loss that was once not possible.

There is also a good possibility of placing into remission diseases associated with obesity, such as diabetes, hypertension, obstructive sleep apnea and hypercholesterolemia. The gift of a life unencumbered by the physical and emotional demands of obesity now becomes a possibility.

We are committed to providing the best care possible to all our patients with the goal of achieving long-term weight loss in all our patients. It has been demonstrated that a multidisciplinary approach to evaluating candidates for bariatric surgery enhances the procedure's success.
