While being obese leads to numerous health problems, this condition can be corrected. Obesity is the leading preventable cause of death in North America.

Gastric Bypass Surgery
For those considering gastric bypass surgery, our doctors offer pre and post operative care. The success rate for Gastric Bypass can increase by preparing for surgery and having a plan after surgery. Often times, a surgeon will recommend some weight loss prior to surgery. Our doctors can offer medically supervised weight loss to help you achieve the goals set prior to surgery. After the surgery is performed, it is important to get your body nutritionally healthy and strong. We work with patients to put together an appropriate nutrition and exercise plan before surgery and after surgery.
