Weight-loss (Bariatric) Surgery

Published On 05/07/2014

Methodist Germantown's accredited bariatric program offers several types of weight-loss surgery, which can be very effective when used along with diet and exercise to address severe obesity and maintain a long-term, healthy weight.

Better Health Through Weight Loss

Obesity is a disease that affects your overall health, quality of life, and even your family. Sometimes diet and exercise alone aren’t enough to keep the weight off, and the National Institute on Health has recognized bariatric surgery as an additional tool.

Studies show that weight-loss surgery can help improve or resolve obesity-related conditions, including:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
