Individuals matter at the Weight Management Center.

Our goal is to provide patients their best chance to achieve permanent weight loss by offering personalized care both before and after surgery. We are dedicated to providing a comfortable environment where you can expect to be cared for with dignity and respect by a team that is sensitive to your needs.

Most of our weight loss surgeries are performed through several tiny incisions in the abdomen. The usual hospital stay is one day for the adjustable gastric banding procedure and 2-3 days with gastric bypass and sleeve. Surgery is only one part of our program - the medical care, dietary counseling and emotional support received before and after surgery are vitally important to your success.

The Weight Management Center is a multidisciplinary program that is uniquely designed to work with patients one-on-one. We offer a compassionate environment and emphasize safety and service excellence. Our program components include:

  • Medical care provided by nurses and doctors with bariatric training
  • Surgical suites, recovery area, and patient rooms designed for bariatric patients
  • Nutritional counseling with a clinical dietician
  • Psychological counseling and support
  • Administrative support for insurance issues
