Bariatric Surgery

Proven Surgical Weight Loss Solutions

Diabetes, high blood pressure, depression and joint pain are just some of the health problems that come with being excessively overweight. Bariatric surgery, commonly referred to as weight loss surgery, can be the key to helping you get rid of many obesity-related health problems.

At Jeanes, we know that losing weight can be one of the most difficult challenges you can face. It's why we offer proven weight loss procedures such as gastric banding and gastric bypass surgery. And because most of our procedures are minimally invasive, they carry a lower risk of complications and often result in a faster recovery. We know that weight loss surgery is a life-changing event and the weight loss team at Jeanes works with you every step of the way.
