Fast Track to Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric Surgery in 30 Days!

When you are ready to embark on this amazing, life-changing journey and want to speed up the process to surgery we can help! Because our bariatric program is hospital-based, we can minimize the time between your consultation with the surgeon and surgery by scheduling most of the necessary appointments in one day.

30 Days to Weight Loss Transformation

Criteria for patient:

  • Must be motivated and ready to make significant lifestyle changes.

  • Meet the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIH) criteria for bariatric surgery. Find out if you are a candidate now.
  • Have body Mass Index (BMI) less than 60. (If your BMI is 60 or greater then you may qualify for the 45 days to transformation.) Use our BMI calculator.
