Bariatric Services

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 true measure of the operation's success is achieving a greater quality of life by improving and eliminating these conditions.

Diet and exercise fail 95% of the time when a person is 75 to 100 pounds over their ideal body weight. Bariatric weight loss surgery may be the next step for people who remain severely obese after trying nonsurgical approaches, or for people who have an obesity-related disease. We specialize in providing the gold standard of health care by performing the Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, Lap Band, Gastric Sleeve, and Duodenal Switch procedures.

At Covenant Health, our commitment is to offer care and treatment for our patients before, during, and after surgery.

If you are considering weight loss surgery, you will want to educate yourself on this life-changing procedure. We are here to answer your questions and to assist you in determining if you are a candidate for weight loss surgery.
