Bariatrics/Weight Management


Tired of battling obesity? So are 58 million other Americans. At St. Joseph's Hospital, we understand the emotional and physical havoc chronic obesity can cause. That's why we offer a surgical weight loss program (bariatric surgery) that can help you lose weight, and keep it off. Whether you have a few extra pounds to lose or are struggling with obesity, St. Joseph’s Hospital has a weight loss program for you. If your weight loss journey includes a surgical procedure, St. Joseph’s Hospital is ready to assist you with gastric bypass or gastric banding. You will also receive comprehensive pre- and post-surgical dietary and lifestyle education, as well as the opportunity to participate in monthly support groups. Find out if your weight is a health risk by taking an online assessment.

To determine whether you may be a candidate, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are you at least 90 pounds overweight?
  • Are you fighting hypertension, cardiovascular disease or diabetes?
  • Have you tried every diet, without successful, lasting results?
  • Have you battled obesity most of your life?
  • Are you ready to look and feel better?

If you answered yes to most of these questions, then you may be a candidate for bariatric surgery.
