Bariatrics and Weight Loss

Often referred to as bariatric surgery, these operations are performed to produce weight loss. But metabolic surgery does far more than help patients lose weight.

Metabolic and bariatric surgery currently provide one of the most effective therapies for diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, arthritis, asthma, acid reflux, infertility and high cholesterol. Such operations performed by one of our highly trained surgeons at the Metabolic Surgery Center at Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital can often restore the health of the morbidly obese individual by the correction of abnormal metabolism.
