The Bariatric Program at Des Peres Hospital is an American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence (BSCOE). We offer surgical hope and help to those who have tried repeatedly and unsuccessfully to lose excess weight and keep it off.
The surgical procedures performed at Des Peres Hospital are Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding, Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass and Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy. These procedures are tools that allow you more control over your consumption of food.
Our multidisciplinary medical team of physicians, psychologists, anesthesiologists, nurses and dietitians works together to assess each patient’s needs and help them achieve a healthier lifestyle. The goal is to help you lose weight and enjoy your new life.
