Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery

If you have tried traditional weight loss methods and failed to see lasting results, you may be a candidate for bariatric surgery.

Bariatric weight loss surgery can offer significant health benefits and effective long-term weight loss, and Piedmont can help you with that process. Not only can serious health conditions be improved and even eliminated, your emotional well-being and quality of life can change dramatically for the better.

Lose the Weight and Gain Yourself Back

Our board-certified bariatric surgeons at Piedmont Medical Center help you achieve the results you deserve. Our program includes:

  • Our team of highly experienced surgeons has performed more than 1,000 minimally invasive surgical weight loss procedures, including Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy or vertical sleeve gastrectomy.
  • The Piedmont Medical Center offers a comprehensive approach to weight loss with a proven record of successful outcomes and superior care.
  • Through a combination of state-of-the-art surgical techniques, education, exercise, and support our weight loss specialists can help you reclaim your health and lose weight quickly.

We have performed thousands of bariatric weight loss surgeries that are not only minimally invasive, but also very effective in long-term management of weight. Surgical treatment options may include:

  • Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass – This surgical procedure is very effective for individuals with a BMI equal to or greater than 45. The surgery can be performed as a laparoscopic procedure to quicken the recovery process and to help the patient get back to their daily life as early as possible.
  • Gastric Sleeve Surgery – Gastric-sleeve surgery shrinks the size of stomach and hence help an individual lose weight by limiting their calorie intake.

Aside from the everyday physical affects of being obese such as fatigue and discomfort, obesity is the underlying cause of Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. Not to mention the emotional affects obesity can have on a person’s outlook on life and themselves.

Weight loss surgery is generally designed for those with a body mass index (BMI) equal to or greater than 40, or equal to or greater than 35 with serious co-morbidities. Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding is also FDA-approved for weight loss surgery in people with a BMI of 30 to 35 who have at least one obesity-related condition. Weight loss surgery is considered safe, but like many types of surgery, it does have risks. Consult with your physician about the risks and benefits of weight loss surgery.
