Is Surgery Right For You?

For thousands of people, bariatric surgery has been the key to living a fuller, healthier life. Most patients who undergo a bariatric procedure report:

  • The improvement or elimination of weight-related health problems, like Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure
  • Greater self-esteem and confidence in public situations
  • Increased mobility and physical activity
  • Greater energy
  • Feeling as if they have a "new lease on life"

Of course, a bariatric procedure is a significant surgery. As such, it should be considered carefully. Our bariatric surgeons will help you decide whether surgery is right for you and which procedure is recommended.
