Why do people just like you choose bariatric care at Ellis?

It’s effective

We understand that people who undergo bariatric care have struggled with their weight for years. If you have difficulty losing weight on your own, surgical or non-surgical bariatric care could help you effectively manage your weight, improve your overall health, and allow you to do what matters to you.

It may offer relief from chronic health conditions

When paired with a comprehensive program, bariatric care can improve or cure obesity-related conditions, such as type 2 diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep apnea, arthritis, asthma, and high cholesterol. Our patients commonly experience rapid weight loss during the first year, followed by more gradual loss. From the onset, we provide guidance, ensuring you achieve a healthy weight. As you reach your goal, our ongoing support doesn’t waver. We work with you to establish a sustainable lifestyle, maintaining your weight at a healthy level for the long term.

For non-scale victories and the things that matter

Weight loss is one reason patients choose medication or bariatric surgery support, but we understand it’s not the only reason. It’s equally about those non-scale victories. The little everyday moments are made better by weight loss and improved health. That could mean something as simple as being able to tie your shoes or play with your child again. It could be traveling in an airplane without a seat belt extender, feeling confident in a bathing suit, eliminating medications, or sleeping without a BiPAP machine.

The Bariatric Care Center at Ellis Medicine understands that everyone’s experience is different. We’ve developed a program that can be personalized to address your needs and weight loss goals.
