The Center for Metabolic and Weight Loss Surgery at Flowers Hospital is designed to assist people with improving their health and quality of life by using surgical intervention for weight reduction. Bariatric surgery has proven to be effective by improving the health of individuals and many obesity-related conditions. Bariatric surgery procedures are only done when deemed necessary and all non-surgical options have been exhausted.
Benefits of the surgery include reduction or elimination of adult onset diabetes, high blood pressure and respiratory conditions such as sleep apnea. It is not just a cosmetic change but life changing surgery. Adaptation to life after weight loss surgery is ongoing. Our monthly support group provides a secure, inviting setting for patients undergoing the process of lifestyle changes to improve weight loss outcomes and is necessary to achieve long-term weight loss.
Bariatric surgery accreditation demonstrates a commitment by Flowers Hospital, the surgeons and our Metabolic and Weight Loss Surgery Center to build and maintain a bariatric surgery program that is truly dedicated to excellence. To earn this accreditation, Flowers Hospital undergoes site inspections during which all aspects of the bariatric surgery program and its surgical processes are closely examined, and data on health outcomes is collected. In becoming a MSBSAQIP accredited program, Flowers Hospital has held itself to some of the highest standards in the industry. The accreditation is indicative of the program’s demonstrated track record and comprehensive commitment to a high level of bariatric care.
