Weight Loss Surgery

If you are affected by obesity, you know first-hand that managing your weight and improving your health is difficult. You are not alone. More than 78.6 million American adults are obese, which accounts for one-third of the adults in our country.

Obesity and Your Quality of Life

Our caring, knowledgeable weight loss surgery team wants to help you take charge of your health. Obesity can seriously affect your quality of life and it can increase your risk of other chronic, life-threatening diseases, like:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Sleep apnea
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke

Menorah Medical Center is accredited by the American College of Surgeons as a Comprehensive Bariatric Surgery Program. You can be referred to the program by your physician or you can refer yourself. Our multi-disciplinary team will be with you every step of your journey to permanent weight loss.

Is Weight Loss Surgery Right for You?

Knowing your weight loss surgery options is important. There is not a single solution, but rather a combination of methods to treat obesity. These “tools” are part of a comprehensive approach to help you reach and maintain a healthy weight, while improving your health. The right combination of tools and lifestyle changes are essential to a successful obesity treatment plan.
