Have you dieted and exercised for years, but haven’t lost the weight you want to? Or have you lost weight over and over, only to gain it back?
People often struggle to reach a healthy weight. Weight-loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, may result in effective, long-term weight loss.
If you are seriously overweight or obese, have not had long-term success losing weight with diet and exercise, and have one or more weight-related health problem, you may be a candidate for bariatric surgery at the MultiCare Center for Weight Loss & Wellness. Through our program, we’re here to help you achieve your weight-loss goals and become a happier, healthier you.
Weight-loss surgery refers to several surgical procedures that reduce the size of your stomach and/or allow food to bypass part of your small intestine. After weight-loss surgery, you typically lose a significant amount of excess body weight. Just as important, you may find that weight-related health conditions, such as diabetes or sleep apnea, improve or completely disappear. Best of all, you may experience greater joy in living.
At MultiCare, our expert team of certified bariatric-surgery professionals care for you in a compassionate, helpful environment. Our program is nationally accredited under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP®), meaning we have the expertise and resources to support success throughout all stages of your weight-loss journey.
Through MultiCare you’ll have access to:
Is weight-loss surgery right for you? Only you can know for sure, but if you’re curious, take our free online Weight-Loss Surgery Assessment.
Then, if you’re a candidate, we encourage you to attend a free seminar to learn about the weight-loss surgery process. We’ll tell you about the types of surgical procedures, insurance requirements, how to get ready for surgery, what recovery is like and how we’ll provide ongoing support to you after surgery.
