Refer to Weight-Loss Surgery Experts

When you partner with us to help your patients improve their health through bariatric surgery, you can be confident that you’re working with some of the best bariatric surgeons in Miami—and in the world. We also work closely with referring physicians throughout the entire process.

Our surgical weight-loss programs at Jackson North Medical Center and Jackson South Medical Center have both earned the ASMBS Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence® designation based on high volumes and specific quality measures.

In fact, we are home to surgeons who are pioneers in the field of bariatric surgery and who have patented instruments to use in bariatric procedures. They have also performed many firsts, including the first gastric sleeve surgery in Miami, and have led international studies in the use of the gastric sleeve.

Has Your Patients’ Obesity Affected Your Care?

More than one-third of adults in the U.S. are obese, and the rates are even higher among African-American and Hispanic populations who compose a significant percentage of our South Florida community. With such overwhelming prevalence, it’s likely you treat many patients who have weight-related health problems – problems that may inhibit your ability to effectively deliver care.

In addition, these patients face a high risk of dangerous, sometimes deadly disease. And as you have likely experienced in your own practice, only a fraction, as little as five percent, finds success losing weight through diet and exercise. For these patients, weight-loss surgery may be a life-changing, even life-saving, option.

Bariatric surgery has proven to have minimal risk, with mortality rates far less than that of hip replacement surgery and considerably less than the side effects of severe obesity left untreated. The quick recovery time coupled with its minimally invasive nature make bariatric surgery a worthwhile option for patients affected by severe obesity.

An Individualized Approach With Ongoing Care

If your patient is a candidate for bariatric weight-loss surgery, our team will help determine the most appropriate surgical approach. And no matter which procedure he or she selects, we will develop an individualized strategy to meet his or her specific weight-loss goals. Then, following surgery, your patient will continue to address a constellation of weight-related issues by participating in:

  • Body image counseling
  • Diet and nutrition classes
  • Exercise advice
  • Patient support groups
