About Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery


Weight loss surgery has emerged as a safe and effective method for the long-term treatment of patients with clinically severe obesity. Deciding to have weight loss surgery is a significant step that requires a permanent lifestyle change.

Hallmark Health Center for Weight Management and Weight Loss Surgery offers the very best in surgical options, treatment, care and support. Through our center of excellence, patients are offered three options for weight loss surgery: Roux-Y Gastric Bypass, The Lap-Band Procedure and Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy. All these surgeries are performed laparoscopically, providing the benefits of minimally invasive surgery, which include faster recovery, better pain control and less potential complications.
