Often, the most effective long-term treatment for obesity is bariatric surgery - especially for a motivated person. If diet,exercise, and other weight loss methods haven’t worked, bariatric surgery may be the right choice to help you meet your health goals and gain an improved quality of life.
The bariatric surgery program at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Hurst-Euless-Bedford addresses the physical, mental and emotional challenges of weight loss surgery by developing a personalized care plan specifically designed to help you meet and maintain your goals. Weight loss surgery options offered at Texas Health HEB include Gastric Bypass Surgery and Gastric Sleeve Surgery.
