It's More Than Surgery. It's a Life-Changer.
Reclaim Your Health With Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery
If you're struggling with obesity, and repeated dieting and exercise have not worked, it may be time to consider a bariatric weight loss procedure. At Crestwood Medical Center, our goal is to guide you toward finding renewed health and wellness through proven bariatric solutions and compassionate support.
Many of our patients experience more than just long-term weight reduction; they experience notable improvement in their health and they “feel” better overall. Concerns - including diabetes, hypertension, respiratory problems, heart disease and depression - may improve significantly after weight loss. Patients often gain a new outlook on life, and can pursue goals and activities that weren’t possible before. Our program utilizes a wide variety of methods throughout the surgical journey, including dietary counseling, behavior modification, exercise and support groups. As we guide patients through this process, we do more than help reduce weight. We change lives.

Am I a Candidate for Weight Loss Surgery?
A bariatric procedure may be a good solution if:
- You have a body mass index (BMI) greater than or equal to 40.
- You have a BMI greater than or equal to 35, and you also suffer from an obesity-related health condition, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea or hypertension.
- Your serious attempts to lose weight through diet, exercise and behavioral changes have had only short-term success.
- You are psychologically ready for weight loss surgery and willing to commit to modifying your lifestyle.
- You do not drink alcohol in excess.
If you suffer from an obesity-related health condition, your BMI is less than 34 and you’ve not been able to successfully maintain long-term weight loss, you may still be a candidate for surgery, depending on other health conditions. Discuss available options with your doctor.
