Get life-changing surgery at Baptist.

The Baptist Center for Weight Loss at Northeast Baptist Hospital has helped hundreds of patients lose the weight they've tried to shed for years with failed diets and exercise programs.

Our patients often lose 100 or more pounds after surgery, but that’s not the end of the benefits. Many of our bariatric surgery patients find they no longer suffer low self-esteem, limited mobility and serious medical conditions associated with obesity. Patients and their doctors have seen remarkable results, including some post-surgery patients who no longer need:

  • Insulin for diabetes
  • High blood pressure medicine or
  • CPAP machines.

Others say they have more energy, sleep better, have reduced joint pain and are much happier after bariatric surgery.
