If you are a morbidly obese patient who has repeatedly failed more conservative weight reduction alternatives such as supervised diet, medications, exercise, and behavior-modification programs, then you may consider one of these weight loss surgical options.

The Weight Loss Surgery Program is a well-structured and multidisciplinary program which includes, in addition to surgical weight loss procedures, a number of other critical elements to help ensure a successful long-term weight loss:

  • Nutritional evaluation and education
  • Psychological evaluation and support
  • Body fat analysis
  • Support group meetings
  • Medically supervised weight loss program
  • Exercise and health promotion programs
  • Specialty services thoroughly familiar with the obese patient's needs (anesthesiology, radiology, endocrinology, cardiology, plastic surgery, etc.)
