The Bariatric Surgery Process: Steps Along the Journey to a New You
Is Bariatric Surgery Right for Me?
Weight loss surgery is a deeply personal, life-changing decision - but you're not alone. We can provide you with the professional support you need to take back your life. It is important to have the answers to these questions as you explore surgical weight loss options.
- What is my BMI (Body Mass Index) and does it qualify me for surgery?
- Does my current weight cause any other chronic health conditions?
- Can I commit to documented weight loss efforts required by my insurance plan?
- Am I willing to re-evaluate my diet and exercise regimen to live a healthier life?
Non-Surgical Weight Loss Program
Ascension Medical Group Mid-Michigan Bariatrics offers a compassionate, individualized, approach, not a "one size fits all" weight loss program. Our program offers a gastric balloon that is an incision-less, non-surgical solution for patients who are not appropriate for or considering invasive surgery, but for whom diet and exercise or pharmaceutical interventions have not worked. The balloon is placed in the stomach for six months, and is used in conjunction with a long term supervised diet and behavior modification program.
