Our specialists understand obesity can be the cause of serious health problems like diabetes and high blood pressure. It can also prevent prospective bariatric surgery patients from enjoying life to the fullest. Since the Surgical Weight Loss Program for Teens began in 2001, we've heard many overweight adolescents and teens say things like: “I can’t ride the roller coasters at the amusement park” or “I can’t play sports with my friends because I can’t keep up." Our weight loss surgery specialists go beyond helping teens and families achieve a healthy life style, we provide you with long-term weight-loss solutions.
