Weight Loss Surgery

We are here to help you get back to living your best life

You’ve tried everything but nothing has worked. You’re tired, frustrated and sometimes feel like there is no solution to the weight concerns you live with every day. We know just how hard it is to be where you are now. We also want to help you understand what is ahead and walk with you every step of the way. We have been down this road many times and know firsthand how rewarding the results can be. Many members of our team have taken this journey themselves and are living a healthier lifestyle now.  Let us cheer you on along the way and help you to your new tomorrow. 

Our free weight loss surgery seminar is a great place to start.

The first step to weight loss surgery is education

To decide if weight loss surgery is the right choice for your life, you need to learn everything you can about each procedure that is available. We invite you to attend one of our free weight loss surgery seminars at St. Francis to learn about bariatric surgery in a safe, compassionate environment. Or, for added convenience we’ve created an online seminar to provide you with the information and education you need in the comfort of your own home.  

Our goal is to ensure that you are completely equipped with the knowledge you need to understand the road ahead. We will help you choose the right procedure, navigate your insurance policy, prepare for surgery, and support you through recovery.

Complete support through your weight loss journey

There are many stops along the way in preparing yourself for surgery. Each one is intended to ensure that you and your family are ready for the lifestyle change that is about to come. You will find that St. Francis Health is well equipped to offer a wide range of support to you both before and after surgery.
