There’s so much to gain from losing the weight, and we can help you achieve it.

Our board certified surgeons specialize in bariatric surgery, minimally invasive surgery and endoscopy.
If you or someone you love is morbidly obese, you already know how damaging it can be. Excess weight can impact your health, self-esteem, and relationships. People who suffer with morbid obesity are faced with a shorter life expectancy and are at a much higher risk for other diseases such as high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes, and sleep apnea.
The Bariatric Wellness Program at Queen of the Valley Medical Center takes a holistic approach to care that encompasses total wellness — body, mind and spirit. We are committed to providing ongoing physical, nutritional, emotional and spiritual support to help you realize the health goals you desire.
According to guidelines established by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), you may be a candidate for bariatric surgery if at least one of these applies to you:
- You weigh 100 or more pounds over ideal body weight
- Your body mass index (BMI) is greater than 40, or greater than 35 if you also have a serious weight-related health condition such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, sleep apnea or hypertension
- You have weight-related problems and restrictions in mobility, work and performance of family responsibilities
