Minimally invasive weight loss surgery procedures are performed at the Center for Bariatric Surgery at West Hills Hospital.
Are you a candidate for Bariatric Surgery?
Bariatric surgery is intended for people who are diagnosed with severe or "morbid" obesity. These are patients who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 or higher (approximately 100 pounds or more of excess weight), or who have a BMI of 30 or higher (approximately 50 pounds or more of excess weight) and who have obesity-related illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), sleep apnea and high cholesterol.
Are you tired of diets that don't work?
Tired of losing weight only to gain it all back and put on additional pounds? Would you like to stop taking medications for diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol? If the answer to these questions is "Yes!", and you are at least 50 pounds overweight, please call our Program Coordinator to learn about our three proven surgical remedies for weight loss.
Call our Program Coordinator Clara at (818) 676-4141 to arrange a free, private consultation.
Even if you are researching weight loss surgery, you are cordially invited to attend to meeting to meet our patients and ask about their experiences with our program and with their weight loss procedures. View the Support Group Meeting Schedule Download the Support Group Meeting Schedule (PDF)
