Providing lasting weight loss, health and wellness through bariatric surgery
Managing your weight can be a lifelong journey. As a leader in weight loss surgery, Prisma Health offers multiple surgical and non-surgical weight loss options, along with pre- and post-surgical support, so you have the best chance of transforming your life.
Why consider weight loss surgery?
Weight loss surgery is not just about looking better. More importantly, it’s about being better, living healthier. Obesity often is linked to other health problems such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, joint pain, sleep apnea, heart disease and even cancer.
Losing weight can lower your risk of developing those conditions if you are not yet affected by them, and can lessen the symptoms or severity of conditions currently affecting your health.
Is bariatric surgery right for you?
If you have a body mass index (BMI) greater than 40, or a BMI between 35 and 40 with other obesity-related health problems such as the ones listed below, bariatric surgery could be a good treatment option for you:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Sleep apnea
- Type 2 diabetes
- Joint pain
We offer a weight loss program that is uniquely designed to work with patients one-on-one. We offer a compassionate environment and emphasize individualized care to help you achieve lasting weight loss, on your terms.
