  • Our weight-loss surgery seminar can now be viewed online. Visit our ‘Becoming a Patient’ page for more information.

  • Studies prove that excess weight significantly increases the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and diabetes – making obesity one of America's most serious health problems.

  • Those who are morbidly obese are at greater risk for illnesses including diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD), gallstones, osteoarthritis, heart disease, and cancer.

  • An individual is considered morbidly obese if he or she is 100 pounds over his/her ideal body weight, has a BMI of 40 or more, or 35 or more and experiencing obesity-related health conditions, such as high blood pressure or diabetes.

  • If you are 50 to 100 percent over your ideal body weight, diet and exercise have only a five percent success rate for long term weight loss. Surgical Weight Loss surgery may be the answer you have been looking for.

  • Many insurance health plans cover bariatric surgery.  It’s important to check with your individual plan for benefits and coverage. Attend one of our seminars and we can help you to make the right decision for you and your health.
