Bariatric Surgery for Weight Loss and Better Health

Bariatric or weight loss surgery is a big step for any patient. While it is highly effective in helping patients lose weight, you and your entire family will be making lifestyle changes that must last for the rest of your life.

When someone’s Body Mass Index (BMI) climbs above 40, the need to lose weight is a health concern that goes beyond how you look. Surgery may be the effective and right approach to weight loss. In fact, some patients may qualify for this surgery with a BMI between 35-40 if there are other complications such as having diabetes or hypertension.

What we know about weight loss is that every patient needs the best support team of nurses, dietitians, support groups, exercise physiologists and even insurance specialists. Since there are three different surgical procedures that could be used to help shorten the time it takes to digest food or reduce the size of the stomach itself, your weight loss surgeon (Bariatric Surgeon) will partner with you to determine which approach will work best for you. We are all different and the surgeons at The Surgical Clinics in Tennessee understand that your weight loss journey will be unique to you.

Our bariatric surgeons are located at Saint Thomas Midtown hospital and Southern Hills hospital in Nashville, TN. Our patients will find a highly experienced staff and highly skilled bariatric surgeons at both locations. We are prepared to support you and your family from the morning of your surgery until the day you return home. Once home, your support team will work with you to help you reach your target weight goal as you become a healthier you.
