This is Sue. She set her sights on a path to self-discovery and weight loss to change her life.  After bariatric surgery at LVHN, she lost half of her body weight and dropped more than 120 pounds.  Sue is now a yoga instructor and helps others reach their fitness goals. She says, “Be kind to yourself. You’re worth it.”

What are you missing because of your weight?

Travel? Weddings? Playing with your kids?  Your grandchildren?  If you’ve tried diet after diet without long term success, weight-loss surgery may be the answer. 

What are the benefits of weight-loss surgery?

It’s about more than appearances. Weight-loss is about living healthier, longer and better. Weight-loss surgery can improve or resolve* conditions like:

  • Type 2 diabetes (most patients are off medication before leaving the hospital.)
  • High blood pressure
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • High cholesterol
  • Metabolic effects of excess weight

*Each person’s journey is unique. Results may vary from person to person.

About you

You must meet certain qualifications in order to be a weight-loss surgery candidate:

  • Are you 18 years of age or older?
  • Is your body mass index (BMI) 40 or above?
  • If your BMI is between 35 and 40, you may also qualify for surgery if you have a serious health condition like high blood pressure, diabetes or obstructive sleep apnea.

Find out what your BMI is in the downloadable guide.

Which weight-loss surgeries are offered at LVHN?

Our metabolic procedures include sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass and adjustable gastric band (LAPBAND®). You will hear the terms, “restriction” and “malabsorption” used to describe weight-loss surgery. Restriction means the size of the stomach is reduced. Malabsorption occurs when nutrients and calories are limited. Learn details about each procedure and feel free to ask questions at our next free information event.
