Sharp Memorial Hospital
Weight-Loss (Bariatric) Surgery at Sharp Memorial Hospital
A safe, effective treatment for long-term weight loss.
Bariatric surgery is more than a surgical procedure — it's a life-changing decision. The benefits of weight-loss surgery extend far beyond losing pounds. It can dramatically improve a variety of serious obesity-related health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, fertility and sleep apnea.
Surgical options to fit your goals.
Nationally accredited by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program, Sharp Memorial leads the way in minimally invasive weight-loss procedures. Our surgeries are performed laparoscopically 99 percent of the time, which results in less discomfort, fewer complications, a shorter hospital stay and fast recovery. And you can choose which surgery option is right for you, be it gastric bypass, vertical sleeve gastrectomy or Lap-Band® surgery.
