Peer support groups, educational speakers and insurance experts are also available to help patients throughout the program.

What Makes Us Different?

No obligation insurance verification and low interest financing. Let our insurance expert review your policy. She will find out what level of coverage you have, your deductible, a close estimate of out-of-pocket costs and what your insurance company requires. If you do not have insurance coverage, low-interest financing options may be available.

Verify Your Insurance

Perform all weight loss surgery options including the most difficult revisions and reversals. Affiliated surgeons and nurses provide a full range of surgery options, including gastric sleeve, gastric bypass and duodenal switch. We also offer surgery to revise or reverse previous bariatric procedures.
