Stop waiting. Start living!
Many people struggle to lose weight and keep it off. If your weight is starting to affect your health and your way of life, it may be time to try another option. Bariatric surgery may be an option for people who have tried other weight loss methods without success.
More than 1,000 patients have had successful bariatric surgery at Gundersen Health System using the latest minimally invasive techniques. For most patients, the hospital stay is two days, with less pain and a quicker recovery.
Our average patient has lost about 70% of their excess body weight one year after surgery and then goes on to maintain significant weight loss long-term. Conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and sleep apnea also show dramatic improvement and in many cases complete resolution.
Bariatric Surgery is a department of Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center.
