About The Surgery
Obesity has become the number one public health problem in our country today. Obesity is a major cause of premature death and many other medical conditions, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, sleep apnea and degenerative joint disease.
Memorial Medical Center’s Bariatric Surgery Program addresses obesity with modern treatment and education. The program comprises surgical, medical, nutritional and behavioral evaluations, patient and family education and ongoing support. To date, our experienced bariatric surgeons have performed more than 3,000 weight loss surgery procedures.
