The CoxHealth Surgical Weight Loss Program is a comprehensive program providing laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding and the sleeve gastrectomy procedure for qualified patients. The program is a Center of Excellence in bariatric surgery, certified by the Metabolic Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program. 

We use the sleeve gastrectomy procedure to help you accomplish weight loss. But you must also commit to lifelong changes in your behavior, diet and activity. 

If you’re considering surgical weight loss, talk to your primary care physician. They can provide you with information and support on your weight loss journey, and may be able to help you begin a medically supervised weight loss program, which can be important to insurance eligibility for a surgical weight loss procedure. if needed, your doctor can also write the Letter of Medical Necessity that is sometimes required. 

Procedures are elective and part of CoxHealth’s in-depth weight loss program.
