CHI Memorial Metabolic and Bariatric Care

CHI Memorial Metabolic and Bariatric Care offers different types of weight loss procedures including the gastric sleeve, gastric band, gastric bypass, and new nonsurgical weight loss balloon. The weight loss balloons we offer are ReShape, and the Obalon balloon system which is the first and only FDA approved balloon system that you swallow. We are dedicated to a comprehensive treatment program to help patients with obesity lose weight and keep it off. In addition to losing weight, bariatric surgery assists some patients in reducing life-threatening co-morbidities such as high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis and reflux disease.

We understand that losing weight and maintaining the weight loss over an extended period of time is difficult, and we recognize that each individual patient has special needs. Understanding those needs allows us to promote the strong motivation and long-term commitment that are crucial to modifying eating behaviors. Altering lifetime habits requires education, emotional support and commitment and our team can help you modify your eating behavior and assist you in making the necessary lifestyle changes that can lead you to better health.
