Are you a candidate for weight-loss surgery? The National Institutes of Health recommends surgery for people with a BMI greater than 40, or 35 if you have obesity-related problems. For most people, this means if you are about 100 pounds overweight you are a candidate for surgery. Designated as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence, our Center provides minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures customized to an individual’s need. Weight loss surgeries can eliminate many medical problems such as diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, joint and back pain and the need for medications. Our patients also receive lifelong support and a free two-month membership to Centegra Health Bridge Fitness Center.If you’d like to learn more about the Centegra Weight-Loss Surgery Center, come to a free informational session.
