If you suffer from severe obesity and cannot lose weight with a healthy diet and exercise, bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) might be an option for you. It is always our mission to improve your quality of life and maximize your health.
The Dangers of Obesity
Severe obesity impacts your well-being by increasing your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, hypertension, obstructive sleep apnea, heart disease, infertility and other obesity-related health conditions. Being overweight can also lead to knee problems from years of putting too much pressure on them.
Supporting You on Your Weight Loss Journey
As a bariatric patient in the TriStar network, you will receive support from our weight loss coaches at every stage of your weight loss journey. This support includes:
- Informational seminars about weight loss surgery options before you choose a procedure

- Post-weight loss surgery classes where you can learn how to maintain a healthy weight after your surgery
