Bariatric Campaign - HNW
• Bariatrics Surgery Seminars 
Bariatric surgery is a type of surgery to help you lose weight. It is an option for some people who are obese and have not been able to lose weight with other methods. Your doctor might discuss bariatric surgery with you if you are obese, or if you are overweight and have a medical problem such as diabetes. Diabetes and certain other health problems can get better with weight loss. 

Surgeons do bariatric surgery using a number of different methods. The type of bariatric surgery that works best for you will depend on several factors. These include your general health, your health needs, and your own preference. Thank you for your interest in joining us to learn more about your Bariatric Surgery options.
