Bariatric and Weight Loss Surgery Services for Patients on the Mississippi Gulf Coast
Mississippians facing obesity and weight issues are at risk of developing other diseases including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, sleep apnea, and degenerative joint disease, all of which are major causes in premature death. Singing River Health Systems is working to help our patients with both surgical and educational programs.
Surgical and Non-Surgical Options for Weight Loss
Since 2000, Singing River Health System and the South Mississippi Surgical Weight Loss Center have partnered to offer bariatric surgery along the Gulf Coast to those who are significantly overweight and need more help than traditional exercise and a diet can offer.
The services offered include weight loss surgery procedures and non-surgical programs with guidance to help patients change their exercise and nutrition habits. South Mississippi Surgical Weight Loss Center believes education can help you get the best from your surgery. The center offers nutritional classes and dietary consults with each office visit. A monthly support group is offered to assist patients with their progress.
