Bariatric Services at Erlanger

Obesity is a complex disease involving diet, physical activity level, heredity, and cultural norms; two thirds of all Americans are overweight and more than one third US adults are obese.

Obesity can also lead to many life-threatening health problems, such as heart or lung disease, type II diabetes, sleep apnea, asthma, GERD, joint degeneration, hypertension, and many types of cancer. Bariatric surgery is known to be the most effective and long lasting treatment for morbid obesity.

Erlanger offers adults, children, and adolescents the opportunity to achieve lasting lifestyle change with emotional, nutritional, medical, and surgical support during and after weight loss treatment. Our programs provided participants with the finest support from multidisciplinary teams including board-certified surgeons, nurse practitioners, nurses, dietitians, psychotherapists, and exercise physiologists.
