Surgical Weight Loss
Parkview’s Center for Surgical Weight Loss has received the designation of a Center of Excellence from the American Society of Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery. This designation ensures that our program meets quality standards including outstanding patient outcomes, a high number of surgeries performed annually, and long term follow up and support. Our Center has board certified fellowship surgeons who perform more than 400 weight loss surgeries each year. We are also a Center of Excellence for Blue Cross, Blue Shield, United Health Resources, Cigna and Aetna.
Parkview’s Center is unique in offering a program of pre-operative, surgical and post-operative care. The pre-op and post-op services including physician consultations, education, dietary counseling and surgical follow-up are offered at our licensed outpatient department located in a suite on the campus at Parkview Hospital. Our designated patient rooms are private and have been remodeled to address our patients’ special needs.
Recognizing that surgery is only the first step in the process to long-term weight loss, we provide ongoing consultation to support dietary and other lifestyle changes necessary to complement the surgery. Monthly support groups provide patients with an opportunity to discuss challenges, celebrate success, gain additional education, socialize, and engage in community outreach.
