There are many types of weight-loss surgery, known collectively as bariatric surgery. Bariatric surgical procedures make changes to your digestive system to help you lose weight by limiting how much you can eat or by reducing the absorption of nutrients, or both. Consider gastric bypass or other weight-loss surgeries if diet and exercise haven’t worked for you in the past or if you are having serious health problems because of your weight.
If this sounds like you, turn to the board-certified bariatric surgeons at Pardee Bariatrics and General Surgery for complete, surgical weight-loss care. From your first visit to lifelong follow-up services, you’ll have an expert team guiding you every step of the way. Trust the guidance of our surgeon, who performs hundreds of bariatric surgeries annually and has the experience to recommend the best procedure for you.
Are You a Candidate?
Enter your height and weight in the calculator and look at your Body Mass Index (BMI). You may qualify for weight-loss surgery if you have:
Body mass index (BMI) of 35–39.9, with a history of obesity-related conditions such as high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes or sleep apnea
BMI of at least 40, regardless of any history of obesity-related diseases
Preparing for Bariatric Surgery
Begin your journey by attending a free in-person informational seminar or watching a video seminar for an overview of the bariatric surgery process, treatment options and expected results. Choose the in-person seminar for an opportunity to meet the weight-loss surgeon and ask them questions and get answers.
