We know choosing bariatric surgery isn't an easy decision. When you’re ready to try a surgical option, the St. Elizabeth and St. Joseph Surgical Weight Loss Center is with you every step of the way. For more than a decade, our team of healthcare professionals has helped thousands of patients reach their goals.
Surgical options are designed for people with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or more (at least 100 pounds overweight), who haven’t had success with more conservative methods of weight loss, such as dieting and exercise. If you are a candidate for bariatric surgery, you and your doctor will decide which procedure is best for you. The center offers a number of options including laparoscopic gastric bypass, Da Vinci robot-assisted bariatric surgery, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and gastric banding.
Our team of bariatric surgeons, nurses, certified counselors and dietitians will be beside you every step of your weight loss journey. Monthly support groups and diet support are available before and after surgery. Support groups meet at 6 p.m. on the first and third Tuesday every month. Meetings are held at our office: 452 Broadway St., Youngstown, OH.
