Bariatric Surgery

Making the choice to pursue weight loss surgery is the first step on the path to achieving optimal health. It’s a decision that should be carefully considered, as it requires lifestyle changes and often comes with a hefty price tag. That’s why every year, more and more Americans and Canadians are traveling to Almater Hospital to receive world-class bariatric weight loss surgery at deeply discounted prices compared to standard U.S. rates.

The benefits of bariatric weight loss surgery are tremendous! From curing diabetes and decreasing your risk for cardiovascular disease to reducing hypertension, depression and migraines – weight loss surgery can drastically improve your quality of life.

When considering bariatric weight loss surgery at Almater Hospital, our team of dedicated physicians will evaluate your general health and emotional well being to determine your readiness for a bariatric procedure. In most cases, bariatric surgery is performed on obese patients (BMI above 35) who have been unable to effectively lose weight through a variety of exercise and diet programs. Surgery should only be considered if you are willing to make diet, exercise and lifestyle changes necessary to achieve your target BMI (27 – 30) and maintain your weight loss.

Bariatric procedures offered at Almater Hospital include:
