Munroe's bariatric surgery program can help you explore your weight loss surgery options.
Research has shown that, as weight increases to reach the levels referred to as "overweight" and "obesity," the risks for coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancers (endometrial, breast and colon), hypertension (high blood pressure), stroke, sleep apnea and many more dangerous conditions also increases. At Munroe Bariatrics, our goal is to make sure that your weight loss surgery delivers the expected weight loss benefits.
Munroe Regional's Bariatric program is committed to providing quality, superior care to those patients who require our specialized bariatric surgery services. In 2007, Munroe was named an American Society for Bariatric Surgery (ASBS) Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence. The ASBS Center of Excellence designation recognizes surgical programs with a demonstrated track record of favorable outcomes in bariatric surgery.
Our bariatric surgery center patients benefit from an entire team of experienced staff who are dedicated to compassionately treating individuals of size. We have a devoted bariatric nursing unit that is prepared with spacious rooms and any specialized weight loss surgery equipment that they may require.
