Metabolic and bariatric surgery has proven to be an effective tool to help people improve their health significantly in multiple ways while losing weight and reducing the amount of medications taken for obesity-related health problems.
In particular, diabetes mellitus type II, improves dramatically with metabolic and bariatric surgery even before significant weight is lost because of changes in metabolism. Other health conditions such as high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, sleep apnea, and others also respond very well.
Our metabolic and bariatric surgery program offers a multidisciplinary approach in a profession and supportive environment. We are sensitive to the unique challenges brought on by obesity and strive to care for each patient with dignity, respect, and understanding.
The bariatric surgery program in Marshfield is offered by Marshfield Clinic.
