Watch our video of Dr. Whitwell discussing Bariatric Surgery:
Bariatric surgery, also called weight loss surgery, is a highly effective treatment for long-term control of obesity. If you have been unable to lose weight from diet and exercise alone, bariatric surgery can help you drop excess pounds and lead a healthier life.
Bariatric surgery is the most effective long-term treatment for obesity. There are significant health risks associated with obesity, and diet and exercise are not enough for many people. Weight loss results after the gastric sleeve procedure are similar to a gastric bypass without the band. That slim future you dream of can finally be a reality.

Weight Management and Lifestyle Changes
Your motivation and commitment to adopt a new lifestyle are extremely important for your successful, long-term weight loss. To maintain your new weight, you must be determined to adhere to new eating habits for the rest of your life.
Exercise is an equally important component of your changed lifestyle. Adequate exercise will not only help you in your battle against excess weight, but it will also benefit your general health and well-being.
If you need psychological counseling to prepare for bariatric surgery, we recommend that you discuss this with your doctor. He or she can refer you to a therapist.
