Bariatric Patient David and Keesha Williams

What is bariatric surgery?

Bariatric surgery is a clinical procedure performed on the stomach and/or intestines to induce weight loss. For patients with health issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea, undergoing a bariatric procedure and committing to a new lifestyle could put an end to weight-related health conditions that limit daily activities and ultimately threaten to shorten lives.

As with any lifestyle change, results depend on a permanent personal commitment to a new way of living and weight management. But you’re not alone on the journey—MedStar Health is ready to help you every step of the way.
