The Bariatric Surgery Process: Steps Along the Journey to a New You

Surgical Weight Loss Treatment Options

Weight loss surgery has helped millions of people shed excess weight and live healthier lives. The Ascension Medical Group Bariatrics care team’s goal is to meet our patients’ needs before, during and after surgery. Your success is important to us.

Following surgery, the average bariatric patient loses and keeps off 50-75% of excess body weight. Many of the health risks associated with obesity — heart disease, stroke, sleep apnea, cancer and diabetes — are reduced by as much as 95-100%.

Despite the positive results, patients considering weight loss surgery need to know that there is no quick fix when it comes to losing weight. Bariatric surgery is only a tool and requires willpower and a commitment to making significant lifestyle changes.
