About the Surgery
Why Weight Loss Surgery?
Weight loss surgery is a means of addressing obesity and works by reducing the body's intake of calories and absorption of fat. Since your stomach is smaller, you feel full faster and learn to reduce the amount that you eat at any given time and to avoid high-calorie food. Mather’s Bariatric Center of Excellence, directed by Arif Ahmad, MD, offers laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, gastric banding and sleeve gastrectomy surgery.
Many patients realize a new and active lifestyle after successful bariatric surgery.* With increased mobility and energy many of our patients are now experiencing the joy of renewed connection with their families and loved ones. They participate in activities that their previous weight and overall health limited them from enjoying such as walking on the beach, hiking, biking, dancing and even sky diving.
