Welcome to the Bariatric Program at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center
We'll help put you on the path to sustained weight loss and a healthier lifestyle.
At P/SL we have a well-established and comprehensive bariatric program with a dedicated and compassionate multidisciplinary team. You will have access to a Registered Dietitian and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker both before and after surgery to assist you with long term weight loss maintenance. Our clinic provides pre-operative nutrition education and post-operative individual follow up appointments and support groups. It is designed to support you in achieving your weight loss goals in a healthy and positive environment. From nutrition education to emotional support, we will be with you every step or the way.
For those who have about 100 pounds or more to lose and for whom regular dieting and exercise simply don't work, bariatric surgery is an effective means of long-term weight loss. Patients who undergo bariatric surgery lose approximately 60-90% of their excess body weight, improving their health and overall well-being. They often see improvement or resolution of diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, joint pain, infertility, acid reflux and other disease states.
