A Step Toward a Healthier Life
Obesity is a disease that can be treated. We're a national leader in bariatric surgery, having performed more than 2,000 operations, including gastric banding. These procedures, when coupled with lifestyle changes and the encouragement of loved ones, can change your life for the better.
If you're reading this, we hope that means you have decided to take control of your life and make some changes to improve your health. Through this website, we'll provide you with more information on obesity and how it affects your entire family. We also offer links to solutions that don't require surgery if you don't feel ready to take that step.
If you are considering weight-loss surgery, the links at left will better explain the different types of surgery available and answer any questions you may have. We know how obesity affects your life and the way you feel, and we are committed to providing you care at every step.
Weight-loss surgery is performed by physicians at the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University, Southern Surgical Associates and Physicians East Surgical Weight Loss Center. If you're ready to schedule an initial consultation, please make an appointment with one of our physicians.
