Weight Loss Surgery

NMMC Bariatric Center logo with tape measure artAt North Mississippi Medical Center, we understand that undergoing weight loss surgery is one of the biggest decisions a person can make. Not only will it mean undergoing surgery, but it also requires dedication to a new eating lifestyle.

Because this is a big investment in your health, you must commit to the treatment plan and follow-up. We will give you the proper education before, during and after surgery to make your surgery successful. Together, we will work toward one common goal, which is improving the quality of your health and life through weight loss.

The NMMC Bariatric Center is accredited by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program as a Comprehensive Center. The Bariatric Center is designated as a Cigna Center of Excellence and is recognized in the Optum Bariatric Centers of Excellence Network. Because of this, 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.
