Bariatric surgery is a term for weight-loss operations for severely overweight people. Under the direction of Dr. Robert Bell, the world-class surgeons at the Yale Bariatric Surgery Program perform state-of-the-art, minimally invasive weight-loss operations, focusing on the least pain, trauma, scarring, and recovery time. Bariatric surgery has been proven to help people who are obese and have not been able to lose weight through diet and exercise alone.
We understand that making the decision to have bariatric surgery is not made overnight. Our surgeons will take the time to talk about your medical history, past weight-loss attempts, your goals, and your concerns to determine if bariatric surgery is right for you, and, if so, which type would best suit your individual needs.
