The Life You Pictured

What’s the life you picture for yourself? Whether it’s everyday things: morning walks on the beach, hikes with friends, or going to shows where you aren't restricted by seating. Or if it’s lifelong goals: getting pregnant, giving birth, or keeping up with your kids' or grandkids’ activities. We’ll help you live each day, confident about the long, healthy life ahead of you. A life where you’ve taken control of your obesity.

Am I A Candidate for Surgery?

If you’ve struggled over the years to manage your weight with diet and exercise alone, surgery is an option. To qualify, you need to have a BMI of at least 40, or a BMI of at least 35 with other resultant health issues (such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and others). BMI, or body mass index, is a measurement of body fat based on your height and weight. See if you qualify for surgery with our BMI calculator.

What Can I Expect?

Our multidisciplinary team of bariatric surgeons, advanced practitioners, certified bariatric nurses, psychologists, nutritionists, and physical therapists will guide you every step of the way. We’ll prepare you physically and mentally before surgery by addressing unhealthy behaviors and helping you lose preoperative weight. Then our highly experienced, board-certified surgeons will perform your procedure—using robot-assisted technology for improved safety, precision, and recovery.

What is Life Like After Surgery?

The results of your surgery will become apparent soon after returning home. Your appetite will change. You’ll get full faster. As you diet and follow your exercise plan, the weight will start to come off. But, unlike before, the weight will stay off. Slowly but surely, you’ll break free from obesity, and start to live the life you wanted.

Our team will provide ongoing care after surgery to ensure your continued success. Support groups are offered monthly, including our "Weigh of Life" Virtual Support Group and our in-person Post-Op Bariatric Support Group.
