Weight Loss Surgery

It's no secret that obesity is on the rise in the United States and continues to be a key contributor to many health care problems that Americans face.

Many diets and weight loss "quick solutions" exist, but questions are raised about how effective and long lasting they are. Surgical weight loss options exist and, for many, provide the answer to altering one's health, self-confidence and appearance.

WakeMed Cary Hospital offers bariatric surgery options from a team of select surgeons who care about the long-term outcome of their patients. Our nurses, dietitians, and support staff work together to create an atmosphere to help the bariatric patient heal and succeed on their path to weight loss.
