Center of Excellence
Begin A Healthier Life
Bariatric Surgery is recognized by the National Institute of Health as
an effective alternative for severe obesity and life-threatening conditions
such as diabetes, asthma, sleep apnea, hypertension and coronary artery
disease. While complications are possible with any surgery, the rate of
complications at Bariatric Surgery Centers of Excellence is extremely
low, less than one percent.
