If you or someone you know lives with obesity, you understand the struggles of endless weight loss programs that have shown no results, exhaustion from small tasks, and the increase of various health risks due to weight. Our compassionate and experienced weight loss specialists understand these challenges and work with each patient to find the best treatment and surgical option. Our surgeons have performed thousands of successful surgeries, and Steward’s hospital programs are accredited by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.
Partners in Weight Loss
Our Weight Loss surgeons and providers emphasize that bariatric surgery is not a cure for obesity. However, we do believe it is an effective way to reduce excess weight and control the serious conditions that result from obesity. Our team approach allows patients to develop a relationship not only with their surgeon but with patient navigators, dietitians, and nurses certified in weight loss surgery. Bariatric surgery procedures that our surgeons perform to help patients reach their goals of a healthy weight include gastric sleeve surgery and gastric bypass surgery. Our surgeons work closely with you in a personalized approach to determine which procedure is the best option for you.
For patients who are not candidates for weight loss surgery, we have experienced weight loss physicians who offer patients a full range of nonsurgical weight loss options, including a physician-monitored weight loss program, behavior modification programs, medications and supplements, dietary and nutritional counseling, and ongoing support.
