Bariatric surgery could be your best option for living a healthy life. Let's find out together.

If you are facing challenges with weight or have been unsuccessful with more traditional weight-loss methods, choosing to explore bariatric surgery is not "giving up" or "taking the easy way out." Bariatric surgery takes just as much commitment to be successful, but it may be the best option for you.

Before we determine if you are a good candidate for bariatric surgery, it's important that you understand the surgical process, the risks and the personal responsibilities that come before and after surgery. To get started, view our online bariatric surgery information session, answer a few questions and complete an online application. 

We also have in-person information sessions where you can get answers to any of your questions. Either way, you've made the good choice to take charge of your health.
