Weight Loss Surgery (Bariatric Surgery)
Sutter Weight Management Institute
Bariatric surgery is a life changing decision. From pre-surgery to lifelong care, your success requires a significant lifestyle change and a strong network of people who understand the challenges this involves. The Sutter team wants you to have all of the information you need before you take this important step to improve your health.
Your decision requires a long-term, personal commitment from the start through the remainder of your life. Sutter’s multidisciplinary approach ensures you will receive care from skilled professionals. We will stand by your side to answer any questions you may have or give you the support you may need in order to reach your personal goals.
Your team will include a bariatric surgeon, bariatrician/physician, bariatric nurse coordinator, registered dietitians, behavioral psychologists, behavioral educators, exercise physiologists, and insurance coordinators. Your family will also benefit from our Bariatric Support Network—an entire community of people who’ve helped their loved ones successfully meet the challenges of losing weight to regain health. There are also programs after surgery to keep you on track, even if you’ve slipped a bit in your pursuit of a healthy weight loss.
