St. John Providence Weight Loss has helped hundreds of patients realize their weight loss goals through our medical and surgical programs -- see some success stories .
Our comprehensive program includes a dedicated team of board-certified bariatric surgeons, certified bariatricians, certified bariatric nurses, registered dietitians, insurance coordinators, and other consulting specialists committed to helping you achieve long-term weight reduction.
Our surgical weight loss program is recognized as a Bariatric Center of Excellence by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. This means the St. John Providence bariatric surgery program meets the highest standards for quality and outcomes and produces the lowest complication rates. In December 2008, our program was named a Blue Distinction Center for Bariatric Surgery by Blue Cross Blue Shield, a designation that further reflects our high quality.
Our surgical weight loss options, include the LAP-BAND® Adjustable Gastric Band, Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy and Biliopancreatic Diversion. Most of these procedures can be performed laparoscopically, which results in smaller incisions/scars, reduced pain, shorter recovery time and reduced risk of infection. We also offer support programs before and after surgery to help ensure success.
SJPWL also includes a renowned, medical weight loss program (non-surgical) for adults and teens that include lifestyle/behavior modification, nutrition counseling and personal exercise training, in a non-discriminating, compassionate environment.
