Benefits and results of weight loss surgery

EvergreenHealth Weight Loss & Bariatric Care offer these surgical options:

We also offer revisional and conversion surgeries.

EvergreenHealth Weight Loss & Bariatric Care provides a team approach to support your weight loss journey from your very first consultation, through surgery, recovery and beyond.

Surgical approaches incorporate preoperative and postoperative education and support, focusing on three pillars to help you reach your goals:

  • fundamentals of a whole foods diet
  • changing lifestyle habits and behaviors
  • activity, movement and play

It is very important to understand that weight loss surgery does not cure obesity. It is a tool to help you transform your life to reduce the effects of excessive weight and alleviate the serious physical, emotional and social consequences of the disease.

From a Grateful Patient (wishes to remain anonymous)

"The surgery was a life changer. I no longer am on treatment for high blood pressure, hyperlipidemia and my diabetes medication was dramatically reduced. I went from a size 30 to a size 12.

Before, I would take my car to a meeting that was just down the street. Today, I keep up walking with all the young people. I no longer need a seat belt extender, or flight attendants offering me help.

I lost 80 pounds 10 years ago and have kept it off without a constant preoccupation with my weight. I am perhaps not society’s image of skinny, but I love my life and have never regretted the decision to have bariatric surgery."
