Half of American adults say they want to lose weight, according to a 2015 Nielson study. But as research has shown, it can be very difficult to lose weight and keep it off on your own.
At Memorial Medical Center, we offer a range of comprehensive bariatric surgery options.
Our weight loss and bariatric surgery programs throughout the Sutter Health network have earned national honors and accreditations. In 2012, Memorial Medical Center was designated a comprehensive Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP®) by the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).
Memorial Medical Center was also named a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence by ASMBS in 2008 and was designated an Aetna Institute of Quality Bariatics Surgery Facility for treating individuals living with morbid or extreme obesity.
These designations examine all aspects of a program's surgical processes and reflect the high quality of a bariatric surgical program.
