Bariatric Center


Undergoing bariatric surgery to lose weight is one of the biggest decisions a person can make. Not only will it mean undergoing surgery, but it will also require dedication to a new eating lifestyle. If you decide to undergo bariatric surgery at NMMC, you will be given the proper education before, during and after surgery to make your surgery successful. This is accomplished by attending the Weight Loss Support Group meetings, attending your office visits, reading the educational material provided, and hearing the individual experiences of past bariatric patients. Together, we will work toward one common goal, which is improving the quality of your health and life through weight loss.

MBSAQIP Accredited Center SealBecause the Bariatric Center is accredited by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program as a Comprehensive Center and is recognized in the Optum Centers of Excellence Network, weight loss surgery at NMMC is covered by more health plans, including those for teachers, state employees and many offered by employers. So, check your health plan benefits, talk to your doctor and weigh your options.
