ABOUT OUR BARIATRIC SURGERY PRACTICE
Obesity is a progressive disease requiring a comprehensive, personalized medical approach. That one simple statement summarizes our core philosophy at The Center for Metabolic and Obesity Surgery, and defines how we handle obesity and its related health complications. We believe that obesity should be treated just like any other disease: with dedicated, compassionate, thorough medical intervention. No one would expect you to treat cancer or a broken leg on your own, and you should not be expected to fight obesity on your own either! The fact is that obesity causes changes to your metabolism and body chemistry that resist all efforts at appetite control and weight loss, as well as causes serious health and psychological problems. For many patients, the only way to treat obesity is through proper medical advice, medical and/or surgical intervention, and a powerful support network.
Under the direction of Board Certified lead surgeon Dr. Wiljon Beltre, The Center for Metabolic and Obesity Surgery offers a comprehensive medical approach to significant weight loss and the treatment of weight-related medical complications. Metabolic and bariatric surgery is only one possible tool in our fully-stocked medical toolkit, and we offer a compassionate, multifaceted approach that is tailored to your unique medical history, metabolism, and weight loss goals, incorporating surgical and medical treatment plans and including a dedicated team of weight loss experts, in order to maximize your chances of long-term success. Our treatment philosophy is based on a few foundational beliefs:
- Significant weight loss is hard work, but it is possible! Weight loss surgery can enable long-term weight loss on a scale that simply that can’t be achieved through diet and exercise. While it is no more of a “magic solution” than the latest fad diet and requires a commitment to long-term lifestyle changes, if you are willing to work hard on your own and with the support of our experienced team of weight loss professionals, metabolic surgery can drastically improve your health and your quality of life.
- Metabolic surgery is about more than just weight loss: If you are suffering from weight-related health problems like type 2 diabetes, metabolic surgery offers some patients an extraordinarily fast resolution of some of these issues, even before serious weight loss has begun. We often tell our metabolic surgery patients not to take their diabetes medication until they have checked their blood sugar, because many of them find they do not require it just days, or even hours, after their surgery!
- Long-term success requires a compassionate, dedicated support network. Metabolic surgery is only the first step in your weight loss journey. At The Center for Metabolic and Obesity Surgery, we are committed to helping you through each and every step after your surgery to ensure you achieve your long-term weight loss goals. We offer dedicated long-term support in two important ways:
- We require monthly office visits for the first year after your metabolic surgery. These regular check-ups will help maximize the success of your procedure and enable us to quickly and effectively resolve any long-term complications.
- We offer monthly support group meetings run by our certified nutritionist. Our support group meetings are extremely dynamic, informative, and interactive, and help our patients remain committed to the many lifestyle changes required for long-term success.
Dr. Beltre and the warm, caring staff at The Center for Metabolic and Obesity Surgery are looking forward to helping you start—and complete—your weight loss journey.
