Finding Weight Loss Solutions

Weight Loss Surgery at Crestwood Bariatric Center

A Variety of Procedures Customized for You

Losing weight can be incredibly hard, both physically and emotionally. Many people struggle with their weight for years and years and just can't seem to get ahead. If that sounds familiar, it may be time for you to consider a bariatric weight loss surgery. Crestwood Bariatric Center offers the following:

  • Adjustable Gastric Banding
  • Gastric Bypass
  • Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy
  • Revision Surgeries
  • Conversion Surgeries
  • Nonsurgical Intragastric Balloon Procedure
  • Laparoscopic Procedures

We want to make sure our patients are comfortable with what to expect at every point in the process. As part of that, we offer regular seminars with one of our bariatric doctors. We also offer a free online assessment to help determine if surgery is right for you.


Compassionate Care

At Crestwood Medical Center, we understand that weight loss is a complicated issue, and it requires a supportive community to make lasting changes. We love the opportunity to walk alongside our patients through the entire process, providing both trusted medical guidance and compassionate emotional support. When it comes down to it, this is far more than a medical procedure—it's a chance for a fresh start, a boost of confidence, and a newfound hope for what the rest of your life can look like.

Wondering whether a weight loss procedure is the right fit for you, and not sure if you're ready to talk to a doctor?

Life-changing is the only adjective to come close in describing my experience. I truly have a brand new life.

From the time I was married in 1999, I began putting on weight, and due to a metabolic disorder that I developed and various medications I was given, my weight grew very quickly. By November 2015, I weighed 382 pounds, and I did not want to reach 400. After visiting a new doctor who recommended the Crestwood Bariatric Program, I attended a seminar with my husband, and I am thankful for it every day. Attending that seminar was the step that sent me down the path toward a new life.
