• Bariatric Surgery

    Some patients have medical issues related to obesity. Our bariatric surgeons perform two of the most common methods of bariatric surgery – lap bands and gastric bypass. To aid patients who are making a decision about bariatric surgery, we offer informational seminars to answer questions and describe the procedures thoroughly.

    Weight-Loss Surgery at Kindred Hospital Mansfield

    Morbid obesity is much more than a weight issue – it can result in:

    • high blood pressure
    • diabetes
    • heart disease
    • joint degeneration
    • stroke
    • sleep apnea
    • GERD

    It can also rob you of energy and the ability to enjoy life’s simplest moments, from carrying a child to taking an evening walk with your spouse.

    Diet and exercise are rarely effective on a long-term basis. Less than 5 percent of people who achieve significant weight loss through diet, exercise and/or medication have maintained that weight loss for 3 to 5 years. (1)

    Success Through Weight Loss Surgery

    Weight loss surgery is successful in achieving the desired loss of excess weight and sustaining that loss over time. (1)

    The two best known and least invasive surgical approaches to treat morbid obesity are:

    • Lap Band
    • Gastric Bypass

    Both of these procedures can be performed with a minimally invasive technique known as laparoscopic surgery. This means the surgery is performed with highly advanced surgical techniques that require only a few very small incisions. The advantage of laparoscopic surgery is shorter recovery time, fewer complications and less pain.

    Kindred Hospital Mansfield is a fully accredited hospital where qualified, credentialed members of the medical staff perform weight loss surgery. These procedures are covered by some health insurance plans.
