The Surgical Weight Management Program at Memorial is a Center of Excellence, as deemed by the American Society for Bariatric Surgery. To earn and maintain this designation, our program underwent an extensive series of site inspections by the Surgical Review Corporation, during which processes were closely examined and health outcomes were rigorously collected. This means that you have access to some of the most effective weight-loss surgery options in the region, as well as a highly trained medical staff that truly cares about helping you lose weight.
For patients who are dangerously overweight, we offer multiple effective weight loss procedures, including:
- Gastric Bypass: A powerful metabolic procedure that produces biological and hormonal changes that counter the body’s natural biological drive to prevent weight loss. Its major effect is biological pushback on ingested food and a metabolism “reset,” allowing substantial weight loss and a lower, healthier weight set point.
- Sleeve Gastrectomy: A newer form of metabolic surgery in which a portion of the stomach is removed. What remains of the stomach is a narrow tube or “sleeve” which retains its natural connection to the intestines. Its major effect is biological pushback with mild mechanical restriction of ingested food.
- Gastric Band: A mechanically restrictive procedure that places an adjustable silicone band around the stomach. Its major effect is mechanical pushback on ingested food.
Memorial's non-surgical weight loss option includes appointments with a registered dietitian and Licensed Clinical Social Worker. For more information, please call (423) 495-2256.
