Saint Joseph Hospital, Weight Loss Surgery Center has been designated a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.

Weight loss surgery isn't just about losing weight. It's about getting back to life.

We'll partner with you before, during and after surgery with expert, compassionate, comprehensive care.

The Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery Center at Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital is a comprehenisve center of excellence, offering surgical weight loss solutions in a streamlined process for those who have exhausted other weight-loss options.

We offer three weight loss solutions:

  • Roux-en-Y / Gastric Bypass
    Restricts food intake and decreases how food is absorbed by creating a small stomach pouch and bypassing the flow of food around the rest of the stomach to the small intestine.
  •  Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy
    By decreasing and moving part of the stomach, food intake is restricted and decreases the amount of food used.
  • Adjustable Gastric Banding
    Reduces food intake by placing a band around the top of the stomach, then tightening and loosening the stomach opening as needed.

  • Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence
