Surgical Weight Loss

Remember, weight-loss surgery shouldn’t be considered a quick fix. After surgery, it is recommended to change your eating and lifestyle habits. This includes eating healthy foods, controlling your portion sizes and exercising regularly to achieve maximum weight-loss.

Weight-loss surgery can produce life-changing results.

You may qualify for weight-loss surgery if you have a:

  • Body mass index (BMI) of 40 or above

  • BMI of 35 or above and you are at risk of having a serious illness or disorder

At the St. Elizabeth Physicians Weight Management Center, we perform open weight-loss surgery and laparoscopic weight-loss surgery. The three laparoscopic procedures we perform are:

Benefits of Weight-Loss Surgery

There are many benefits of weight-loss surgery, including:

  • Improved or resolved diabetes, high cholesterol and sleep apnea
  • Improved fertility
  • Decrease in back and joint pain
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Improved mobility
  • Fewer medication requirements

Laparoscopic Weight-Loss Surgery

Although open surgery is an option at the Weight Management Center, we typically perform laparoscopic weight-loss surgeries because they often result in:

  • Better wound healing
  • Less pain
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Shorter recovery times

Though weight-loss surgery has many benefits and is a lifesaving procedure for some patients, there are risks. Risks include gastrointestinal leak, bleeding, pneumonia, blood clots, vomiting, wound infection, bowel obstruction and death.
