Obesity affects far more than just your waistline. It's a metabolic condition that increases your risk for health problems such as cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. The OSF Little Company of Mary Bariatric Surgery Center is dedicated to safely and effectively treating patients who are chronically 100 pounds or more over their ideal body weight.
After living years with the pain of unsuccessful diet and exercise plans, you may lose hope that you can live the happy and healthy life you deserve, that's why we strive to reduce the problems related to obesity.
We offer a complete team of specialists from our bariatric surgeons to a support staff including nutritionists, psychologists and more to provide new answers and options for overcoming obesity and give you the healthier, happier life you deserve.
Advanced, Minimally-Invasive Procedures
The OSF Little Company of Mary Bariatric Surgery Center is focused on reducing the pain of surgery as much as possible. That's why we specialize in minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques including Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Surgery and the Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy.
With less pain, a lower rate of complications, a shorter hospital stay, and a quicker return to normal activities, these procedures let you begin a new lifestyle sooner. And, they represent the latest advancements in bariatric surgery.
Good treatment is important in all areas of our center, not just the operating room. Our staff sees every patient as an individual. Your treatment will be based on many factors and considered carefully. Overcoming obesity requires changing your lifestyle, and we're here to make sure we take every step with you and provide as much information as needed, because advanced care should never come at the expense of comfort.
Continued education and support are vital to successful long-term, healthy weight loss. Join us for monthly support group meetings the first Tuesday of every month. Participants will have the opportunity to talk to other people who have undergone weight-loss surgery and learn from their experiences.
