Surgical Weight Loss Solutions

Weight loss and keeping the pounds off can be a life-long battle. If you struggle with obesity and have made serious attempts at losing weight through diet and exercise, weight loss surgery—also known as bariatric surgery—could be an option.

Weight loss surgery options we offer, depending on location, include:

  • Roux-en-Y gastric bypass
  • Gastric sleeve
  • Gastric band (or lap band)
  • Laparoscopic/robotic gastric bypass
  • Laparoscopic/robotic gastric sleeve

Surgery procedures are usually performed with minimally invasive techniques.

Bariatric surgery is a major decision, and it is not an immediate or quick fix solution. Our caring physicians at Shelby Baptist Medical Center are dedicated to helping surgical weight loss patients live a healthy life.

Weight loss surgery is generally designed for those with a body mass index (BMI) equal to or greater than 40, or equal to or greater than 35 with serious co-morbidities. Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding is also FDA-approved for weight loss surgery in people with a BMI of 30 to 35 who have at least one obesity-related condition. Weight loss surgery is considered safe, but like many types of surgery, it does have risks. Consult with your physician about the risks and benefits of weight loss surgery.
