We know weight-loss surgery is a big decision. And, it's important that you get all the information you need, including answers to sensitive questions. Bariatric surgery leads to life-long change and should be contemplated only after considerable research and after all other available options have been discussed with your primary care physician. Our surgeons perform a variety of procedures, such as gastric bypass, gastric banding and sleeve gastrectomy.

Bariatric surgery is a safe and effective option for patients with:
  • BMI greater than 40
  • BMI between 35 and 40 with at least one obesity-related comorbidity such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or sleep apnea
  • Patients who have struggled with weight loss using traditional non-surgical methods

Weight-loss surgery yields additional benefits to patients who have failed to lose weight using other methods. These benefits include:
  • Improved quality of life
  • An improvement in, or cure of, obesity-related diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea and high cholesterol
  • Reduced dependence on medications
  • Improved mobility

At Ocean Medical Center, our expert physicians and dedicated team are dedicated to guiding you on your individual journey to a healthier life. Read more about the Program for Weight Loss Surgery at Ocean Medical Center.
