Weight Loss and Bariatric Surgery
If you know excess weight is keeping you from a healthy, active life, Beacon Health System can help you take the first step toward permanent weight loss. Our weight management programs offer a range of choices for both medical and surgical weight management.
Bariatric surgery is a life-changing option that offers hope for people considered more than 100 pounds over their ideal weight, with a body mass index of 40 or more. Our thorough evaluation process helps us select candidates for surgery who are fully committed to making diet, exercise and lifestyle changes for a lifetime.
Our patients who have had a bariatric surgical procedure commonly report improvements in their quality of life, social interactions, psychological well-being, employment opportunities and economic status.
We’re here to help you:
- Shed excess weight
- Reduce your risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease
- Gain greater ease of movement
Let us guide you step by step as you pursue a healthier lifestyle.
