Weight Loss Through Surgery
Welcome to Shady Grove Adventist Hospital's weight loss management site. Shady Grove Adventist Hospital's Bariatrics Program has recently been named an American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence. The ASMBS Center of Excellence designation recognizes surgical programs with a demonstrated track record of favorable outcomes in bariatric surgery.
To earn a Center of Excellence designation, Shady Grove underwent a series of site inspections during which all aspects of the program’s surgical processes were closely examined and data on health outcomes was collected.
With more than 14 million Americans overweight, obesity has quickly become the number one cause for preventable deaths in the United States. Bariatric surgery isn't about fitting into a particular size; it's focused on improving health and creating a new way of life.
On these pages, you will find information about Shady Grove Adventist Hospital's Bariatric team, about obesity, weight loss surgery, inspirational testimonials, before and after photos and many other resources to assist you.
