We know how difficult losing weight can be. We also know living at a healthy weight can reduce your likelihood of having major health complications.
There are many treatment options for obesity and our Bariatric Surgery team provides the oversight and information needed to guide you through your weight-loss journey.
A nutritious, well-balanced diet helps maintain your body’s everyday functions, promotes optimal body weight and can assist in disease prevention.
Exercise lowers blood pressure and bad cholesterol, helps to improve emotional well-being and sleep, and reduces appetite.
BMC offers the Orbera balloon designed to assist adult patients with obesity, in losing and maintaining weight.
Bariatric surgery is the only option today that effectively treats obesity in people for whom more conservative measures such as diet, exercise and medication have failed. BMC offers bariatric surgery performed by Dr. Stephen Archer.
