My Bariatric Solutions
Our program offers patients a weight loss surgery program that caters to their specific needs. The team of specialists include a Medical Director, board certified surgeons, nurse practitioners, bariatric nurse coordinator, registered dietitians, exercise physiologists, & other team members who provide each patient with expert care before and after weight loss surgery. Many of our employees have had bariatric surgery themselves, so they understand the unique needs of the patients.

We perform the latest, most-advanced bariatric surgical & non-surgical procedures, including Lap-Band®, Gastric Sleeve, Gastric Balloon, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and Revision Bariatric Surgeries (such as Gastric Sleeve to Gastric Bypass or band to sleeve).
