Fully accredited comprehensive center for bariatric surgery by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program®
Weight loss is a personal journey for every individual. When diet and exercise are simply not enough, many turn to other options to lose the weight. St. Mary’s General Hospital’s Bariatric Program creates a personal weight-loss program with an individualized care plan aimed at transforming the patient’s life through weight loss, as well as reversing the onset of life-threatening disease.
Weight loss surgery, known medically as bariatric surgery, is performed on patients who are approximately 100 pounds or more overweight and have been unsuccessful with diet and exercise programs, and weight-loss medications. Someone who is 60-80 pounds overweight may qualify if he or she has a medical condition related to obesity. In addition to surgery, St. Mary’s General Bariatric Surgery Program provides counseling in the nutrition, exercise and psycho social aspects of obesity.
