Surgical Weight Loss
Part of your Individual Treatment Plan may include surgical intervention for weight loss.
Proper nutrition and moderate exercise are essential to maintaining an appropriate weight and for overall good health. But for some people who struggle with morbid obesity, dieting and exercise alone are not enough to lose and maintain substantial weight loss to improve their health. For some, bariatric surgery, in addition to lifestyle changes, may be the holistic approach to achieving and maintaining great health.
Weight loss surgery is by far the most effective means of significant and durable weight loss for people with morbid obesity. It requires comprehensive, expert care from an experienced team of surgeons and other medical professionals.
As part of the Weight Loss and Wellness Center, if deemed medically appropriate for your situation, you have access to bariatric surgery at Memorial Medical Center in Springfield.
