Specialized patient care
The Bariatric Surgery Program at Kaiser Permanente offers a multidisciplinary approach to obesity treatment. Obesity is a chronic disease with a variety of metabolic and physiologic disorders, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, dyslipidemia, and obstructive sleep apnea – all which have a significant impact on overall health and quality of life. Bariatric surgery can be a life-changing process. We’re committed to partnering with our weight loss surgery patients to maximize their chances for success while minimizing the risks. Learn more >
A healthier you
While bariatric surgery is an important part of our weight loss program, it is just one tool to help you reach your long-term goal of sustainable weight loss. Our team of surgeons, bariatricians, case managers, dietitians, and mental health practitioners provide consultative services both before and after surgery. We include nutritional and exercise instruction as well as access to support groups. We want our resources to help you with the post-surgery lifestyle changes required to achieve successful weight loss and lifelong maintenance.
