Weight Loss Surgery from Dignity Health Bariatrics


It’s time to find your way to better health, to living a healthier life. Weight loss surgery may be what you need to finally make the change.



Is Bariatric Surgery For You?

Changing your life starts with a simple first step: determining if weight loss surgery is right for you. Once you make that decision, it may feel as if a tremendous weight has already been lifted.

Our free informational seminars are designed to help you better understand weight loss surgery  options, the requirements before a procedure, and what to expect after surgery in order to decide if bariatric surgery is for you.

We will also discuss the procedures we offer:

  • Roux-en Gastric Bypass
  • Gastric banding
  • Sleeve gastrectomy

At the seminar, you'll  have the opportunity to meet some of the team that will be there to offer you the support you need along the way.

Register for an upcoming weight loss surgery seminar here to learn about your options.

Our quick online assessment is also a way to help you determine if bariatric surgery is the way to go. It takes only a few minutes and the detailed report you'll receive based on your input can be a valuable tool in your decision making process.
