Bariatric surgery, or weight loss surgery, is a highly effective tool to improve patient health dramatically. At the University of South Alabama Center for Weight Loss Surgery, we give patients many options for weight loss using bariatric surgery, as well as minimally invasive surgery. Weight loss surgery can be a life-saving procedure for people with morbid obesity.
At the USA Center for Weight Loss Surgery, our bariatric surgeons work with patients who have been unsuccessful at other types of weight loss and who qualify for weight loss surgery. We specialize in all types of weight loss operations, including Gastric Bypass, Sleeve Gastrectomy, and Adjustable Gastric Banding. We also specialize in revisional bariatric surgery and complex disease processes of the gastrointestinal tract.
When considering bariatric surgery, keep in mind that the weight loss is part of your experience. The most important health benefit weight loss surgery provides is an effective cure or relief of diabetes, high blood pressure and a host of other co-morbidities associated with obesity.
Our procedures are covered by many insurance plans, and we accept Medicare patients under age 70. For patients without insurance coverage, we have some of the most competitive cash prices in the region. Please call us for more information about cash payment options.
