Healthy Living & Weight Loss
Our goal is to enhance your ability to achieve significant weight loss and to provide you with the support and comfort that you need during that process.
The Weight Loss Center at Saint Francis Hospital was the very first in the region to perform laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery. Our goal is to enhance your ability to achieve significant weight loss and to provide you with the support and comfort that you need during that process. Your needs and desires are important to us and we will address any issues that you communicate to us. Our one-day evaluation allows patients to receive all the tests necessary to achieve insurance approval in one day. This simplifies the pre-op certification process for the patients and is especially helpful for our out-of-town patients or patients traveling great distances.
We are pleased to offer our patients with morbid obesity multiple avenues to achieve weight loss. We offer surgical weight loss options with all the currently available surgical techniques to achieve weight loss including laparoscopic surgery (gastric bypass surgery and gastric band surgery). The benefits of our laparoscopic surgeries is that it is less invasive which leads to less pain, easier and faster recovery and improved cosmetic results.
We also provide non-surgical weight loss techniques including behavior modification, dietary aids, and supplements.
