Bariatrics

Bariatrics is the branch of medicine that deals with the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity.

Many people find it difficult to lose weight on their own. Through surgical treatments, many patients are able to lose weight and keep it off, as well as experience improvement in a range of weight-related medical issues. Bariatric surgery is a safe and effective option that can help patients control their appetite, lose pounds and maintain a healthy body weight for a long and active life.

The Lovelace Bariatric Program is committed to serving you as you begin your weight-loss journey. Our experienced team will help determine which procedure is right for you.  We offer a range of weight-loss surgery options, including sleeve gastrectomy, lap-band and gastric bypass. All of these procedures are performed using laparoscopic, minimally invasive techniques.

In addition to bariatric procedures, our bariatric program offers a variety of services, including nutritional counseling, weekly education groups for those enrolled in the bariatric program and a monthly evening support group open to everyone, fills/adjustments, and follow-up visits.

Call us at 505.727.4290 to reserve a spot at one of our free seminars. For more information on our program, visit our website at www.lovelacebariatrics.com. We look forward to working with you and helping you to reach your weight-loss goals.
