Success Stories

Our surgeons have been performing bariatric surgery since 2003 with a success rate that is well above the national average. We believe in long-term patient support and hold monthly support groups for past and future clients.


We invite you to attend an informative seminar to learn more about our bariatric surgery program. Our seminars are free, pre-registration is not required, and we encourage you to bring family and friends with you to the seminar.

BMI Calculator

While only a qualified surgeon can determine if you are a candidate for weight-loss surgery, you may be a candidate for bariatric surgery if you have a BMI of 40, or a BMI 30-35 or higher with one or more obesity-related conditions.
