Weight Loss (Bariatric) Surgery

Last Updated 11/8/2013 11:26:43 AM

Bariatric surgery, also called weight loss surgery, can deliver life-changing and even life-saving results. Researchers from the University of Massachusetts Medical Center reported at the 29th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) that 67% of gastric bypass patients were in complete remission for diabetes type 2 after 12 months. They added that 96% of those not already on insulin and who did not have lower pancreatic function went into remission after weight-loss surgery within 12 months.

However, bariatric surgery is not a decision to make lightly. Like every procedure, bariatric surgery poses certain risks. And your success is dependent on your readiness, your commitment, and your access to support before, during and after the surgery. That’s why it’s important to compare programs, weigh your options, and choose a team you can trust.

We offer unmatched support at every stage of the process, so you have the information, counseling and tools you need to achieve and maintain dramatic, permanent weight loss.

Our accredited bariatric surgery program is the choice of many successful patients. You can research some of our success stories and additional information throughout the Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery section on this site. We also have great resources for those who are ready to take the next step and get started.
