Bariatric Surgery and Weight Loss Center
Surgical and Non-Surgical Weight Loss Options
If you’ve been struggling to lose weight and keep it off, you’re in the right place. Even if you’re committed to losing weight, it can be hard to know where to start, especially if you have a significant amount of weight to lose. That’s where we come in. Our Bariatric Surgery and Weight Loss Center offers both surgical and non-surgical weight loss solutions that are customized for every patient.
Bariatric or weight loss surgery is an option for those with a BMI over 40 or those with a BMI over 35 and at least one weight-related chronic health condition. Bariatric surgery patients must also be between the ages of 18 and 65.
Bariatric surgery can help patients achieve lasting weight loss and may resolve many obesity-related conditions such as sleep apnea, diabetes, high blood pressure, acid reflux disease, and heart disease.
Our fellowship-trained bariatric surgeons perform minimally invasive sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass procedures. They also do gastric band removals.

Non-Surgical Weight Loss
Our non-surgical weight loss program is an option for those with a BMI over 25 or for Asian Americans, African Americans, and Hispanic Americans with a BMI over 23 and at least one weight-related chronic health condition. Patients must be over the age of 18.
Non-surgical or metabolic weight loss management is designed to identify underlying health conditions and lifestyle habits linked to weight gain. Once these are established through a comprehensive medical history and health screening, endocrinologist and obesity medicine specialist Dr. Lakshmi Kannan will work with patients to develop an individualized treatment plan that may include prescription medications, nutrition counseling, and fitness coaching.
