Department of Bariatric Surgery
While being overweight is a very common health condition for us in the Western World, being overweight becomes a problem when it is damaging our health. Obesity has serious health implications and not only affects our quality of life but it can significantly shorten our life span too. One of the most successful ways for dangerously obese people to lose weight and to improve their health is through bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery). If a patient has tried all other methods of weight loss then we recommend that they visit our team of bariatric surgeons at La Peer Health Systems.
The Department of Bariatric Surgery at La Peer Surgery Center is made up of a small team of gastroenterology specialists. These physicians have undergone many years of intensive medical schooling, residency and training to get here and they continue to exert all that is good in the area of bariatric medicine, including general patient care and support. La Peer Health Systems was also named one of the 100 Greatest Places To Work by Becker's ASC Review. We take great pride in our professional and courteous staff and are honored to be included on Becker's 2013 ASC Review.
Surgical procedures offered by this department of the center include gastric bypass surgery, sleeve gastrectomy, gastric banding and biliopancreatic diversion amongst many others.
