If you are morbidly obese or have other chronic weight-related conditions, one alternative is bariatric surgery. At the Hurley Bariatric Center, we recognize that weight loss surgery isn’t for everyone, and that each of our patients is unique with their own personal story and goals. That’s why our team of highly-skilled bariatric surgeons partner with patients to help them choose a custom-tailored plan that’s right for them for successful, sustained weight loss. We provide pre- and post-surgical emotional support, nutrition and exercise counseling, and all the information patients need to make this life-changing decision, as well as 24-hour post-surgical care by our expert surgeons and staff.
