Bariatric Care Center
The Bariatric Care Center at Summa Health System has been helping people lose weight since 2004. Since its inception, it has promoted a physician-driven, team-based approach to weight loss.
There are numerous “quick fixes” in the market, none of which has resulted in long-term significant weight loss. While it is appealing to think of taking a pill to miraculously and effortlessly melt away the pounds, the reality is that it takes hard work and time to undo the eating behaviors and choices that lead to obesity.
The Bariatric Care Center offers both surgical and non-surgical options for weight loss. Depending upon the degree of your obesity and the level of knowledge you have regarding the options for addressing it, we can help you decide which of our programs best fits your needs.
All patients of the Bariatric Care Center experience a physician-driven solution, with the assistance of our team of clinical psychologists, registered dietitians and clinical exercise specialists. We believe that patients struggling with excess weight, whether in the early (pre-obese) or late stages of the disease, require a multidisciplinary solution.
The reasons for obesity are many and varied, and as such require a personalized solution and life-long support. The Bariatric Care Center works with each individual to achieve the best possible outcome.
