Bariatric Surgery

The University of Michigan Adult Bariatric Surgery Program offers a comprehensive and personalized weight loss surgery program designed to help you reach your goals. By performing gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy with small incisions (laparoscopically) you will recover more quickly and have less risk for complications. Success starts by learning more about obesity, understanding the risks and benefits of surgery and committing to life-long habits to improve your health.

Bariatric surgery requires a life-long commitment to your health and well-being. We are here to help you stay committed by providing tools and services designed for success.

After attending our Bariatric Informational Session and completing our medical and nutrition questionnaire, you will need to undergo a full medical, psychological and dietary evaluation. Afterwards, your information will be presented at a multidisciplinary Review Committee Meeting (RCM) for consideration of the risk and benefits of bariatric surgery.

Please note that our bariatric surgery program is for adults only. If you under the age of 18 years please visit the Pediatric Comprehensive Weight Management Center for details.
