Your Success is Our Success
Obesity is a complex and chronic disease that often seems to defy our best efforts.
The Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Program at the Loma Linda University Heart and Surgical Hospital (LLUHSH) offers effective tools and services to help you first achieve and ultimately maintain better health and improved quality of life. Our respected team of medical professionals and fellowship-trained surgeons are dedicated and committed to your life long success.
This program reflects how we live our values at LLUHSH – by embracing a balanced life that integrates mind, body and spirit. Along with a medically supervised weight loss service, we offer proven, trusted surgical options, including:
- laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding
- laparoscopic gastric bypass
- laparoscopic gastric sleeve surgery
And, to ensure long-term success after the procedure, lifestyle counseling and support groups provide ongoing support and guidance for you and your family.
