For people struggling with weight loss through diet and exercise, and have accompanying health problems such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, joint pain, sleep apnea, infertility, and more, the Center for Bariatrics at Bayshore offers a safe and healthy option to lose weight and keep it off.
Highly personal, our approach offers individual care plans based on your unique situation, and includes counseling, nutrition, exercise, and medical and surgical treatment. In addition, our dedicated multi-disciplinary team and support groups will ensure the best possible outcome for each and every patient.
Bariatric surgery or “weight-loss surgery” may be a good option for people who are morbidly obese and have failed to achieve and sustain long-term weight loss. The surgery works using both malabsorption and restriction: therefore, patients do not absorb some calories and nutrients and are satisfied with smaller portions of food.
Only surgery is proven to promote significant and sustained weight loss for qualifying individuals, and it helps improve or eliminate many additional health conditions. Of course, bariatric surgery is a tool, not a cure. For the surgery to be effective long term, it must be used properly. Through lifestyle changes such as regular exercise and a health food plan, many patients are able to make a long-term change for better health.
The Center for Bariatrics at Bayshore is an accredited center of the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP), the highest accreditation level available to bariatric surgery facilities. We are also the recipient of the 2021 Healthgrades award for Excellence in Bariatric Surgery and overall five-star bariatric care.
