Covenant Health 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
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.
