Weight-Loss Surgery

We provide a variety of personalized treatment plans and options to help you meet your weight-loss goals, including weight-loss surgery. Also known as bariatric surgery, weight-loss surgery may not only help restore your health, but it can also restore your confidence. It can be a turning point in helping you have the energy and mobility to engage in the activities you love again. Weight-loss surgery can be the key factor in beating severe obesity and shifting toward a lifetime of healthy living.

Weight-loss surgery has been shown to be very effective at producing significant and sustained weight-loss, but there are other benefits to weight-loss surgery as well. Our weight-loss surgical procedures at the Baptist Center for Weight Loss may help you overcome diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea and other obesity-related diseases.
