Surgical Weight Loss

People who are 100 or more pounds over their ideal weight are suffering from morbid obesity, and a surgical weight loss option may be the solution to improving their health. Bariatric surgery, typically either a restrictive procedure to reduce food intake or a malabsorption procedure that alters digestion, is available in several locations throughout our health system.
