Bariatric Surgery


If you suffer from morbid obesity (100 pounds or more above your ideal weight), Geisinger can help you begin healing from the medical, social, and psychological complications that accompany this disease. Serious problems like diabetes and hypertension can be eliminated or made less severe with weight loss surgery, as patients benefit from losing anywhere from 40 to 60 percent of their excess body weight.
