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 about cosmetic changes 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 surgery outcomes and is necessary to achieve long-term weight loss.
