Weight Loss and Bariatric Surgery

Your weight loss journey begins at The Center for Bariatrics at Community Medical Center

We realize that weight loss is a journey, not a destination. We understand that the struggle with obesity is often complex. Obesity can be influenced by family history, physiological, environmental, socioeconomic and psychological factors. When other methods of losing weight have not been successful, surgical treatment may be an option. Effective, long-term weight loss requires lifelong changes and commitment.

Your weight loss transformation can begin today with a combination of bariatric surgery, nutritional counseling, exercise and monthly support groups with people who are working hard towards a healthier lifestyle, just like you.

Our approach

The Center for Bariatrics is designed to help you reach your individual goals. With a comprehensive and collaborative approach to weight loss, our multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, dieticians and psychologists work with you throughout the entire process. Our team will provide you with a complete evaluation before surgery and education and support throughout.

How our program is different

We take a different approach to weight loss. Instead of focusing on short-term goals like reducing the size of your waist; we emphasize long-term benefits like reducing your risk for type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea and high blood pressure. The Center for Bariatrics offers a comprehensive approach to weight loss and bariatric surgery. We develop an individualized treatment plan and follow-up care for all of our bariatric patients, so you not only receive surgery, but also a lifestyle management program that helps you achieve weight loss, minimizes potential complications with surgery, assists with behavioral adjustments and promotes overall good health.
