Now, more than ever, the health care community is concerned with how obesity affects the body. Heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis and sleep apnea are just some of the physical ailments linked to obesity, not to mention depression, social anxiety and a diminished quality of life.
Lodi Health’s new bariatric surgery is performed at Lodi Memorial Hospital and a number of support services for the program are available on an outpatient bases to meet your needs before and after sugery. Our bariatric surgery team understands that losing weight alone can be one of life’s biggest battles – and it’s not something that most people can achieve through diet and exercise alone.
Through Lodi Health, candidates can choose from three well-known surgical procedures – adjustable gastric band, vertical sleeve gastrectomy and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. To ensure minimal scarring and faster recovery time, our board-certified surgeons use the latest surgical techniques i.e. laparoscopic (minimally invasive) and robotic-assisted surgery.
