Our skilled bariatric surgeons are committed to quality, with a focus on the safety, comfort and long-term wellness of our patients. We place an emphasis on educating patients about bariatric surgery to help them determine if weight loss surgery is their best option and, if so, which procedure is most appropriate.

Weight Loss Surgery Options

Dignity Health's Bariatric Surgery Program offers patients three types of weight loss surgery:

The Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass is considered the gold standard in bariatric surgery and is the most widely used weight loss surgery procedure for patients seeking significant results

Sleeve Gastrectomy is a restrictive bariatric surgery procedure in which 85 percent of the stomach is removed

The Lap Band® is the least invasive weight loss surgery procedure, performed using a minimally invasive/laparoscopic technique

Am I a Candidate for Weight Loss Surgery?

We recognize the obstacles and challenges you face every day and applaud you for taking the first step on your journey toward better health. To qualify for bariatric surgery, you must meet the following criteria established by the National Institutes of Health and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery:

You are more than 100 pounds over your ideal weight

You have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 or greater or a BMI of 35-39.9, along with two or more medical conditions such as diabetes and/or hypertension which would improve significantly with weight loss

You have tried and been unable to lose weight through diet and exercise

You are prepared to make a lifelong commitment to dietary, exercise and behavioral changes necessary for long-term success

You have no mental or behavioral disorders that may interfere with long-term weight loss success
