We know losing weight is hard and we’re here to help. The Roper St. Francis Bariatric & Metabolic Services program is an ASMBS Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence

to help you lose weight.
There are many reasons to want to lose weight, but the most important should be for your health. Being overweight increases your risk for serious health conditions such as heart disease, sleep apnea, Type II diabetes and some cancers. In fact, obesity is a leading cause of illness and premature death.
The decision to have bariatric surgery is life-changing and should be made after careful research and consideration. Our goal is to provide our patients with the opportunity to transform their health. Learn more about obesity
