The Methodist Hospital Bariatric Program offers a multi-disciplinary, team-centered approach and has been recognized as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.
Through our approach to the treatment of obesity, we are completely committed to quality and excellence, with a focus on the safety, comfort and well-being of our patients. We place an emphasis on educating our patients to help them determine if surgery is the best option for them and, if it is, to assist them in making their procedure as successful as possible.
We recognize the obstacles and challenges our patients face every day and we applaud them for taking the first step on their journey toward better health. We work with each individual patient to determine the procedure that is most appropriate for them, based on several factors:
- Current weight
- Underlying medical conditions
- Eating and lifestyle habits
- Overall health
The Methodist Hospital Bariatric Surgery Sacramento Program offers patients three types of weight loss surgery:
The Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass is considered the "GOLD STANDARD" in bariatric surgery and is the procedure most widely used for patients who are seeking significant weight loss
Sleeve Gastrectomy is a restrictive procedure in which 85% of the stomach is removed
The Lap Band® is the least invasive surgical weight loss procedure, performed using a minimally invasive/laparoscopic technique
The physicians and staff associated with the Bariatric Surgery Sacramento Program at Methodist Hospital will be with you every step of the way, from our introductory education session, to initial physician consultation, to nutrition counseling, to surgery, to post-surgery support. Our goal is to help patients develop the tools they need as they begin a new life - a life of improved health, activity and longevity.

Weight-loss support group
Methodist Hospital's weight-loss support group meets in a comfortable, informal setting at Bruceville Terrace, located at 8151 Bruceville Road. Meetings are held the third Thursday of each month, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Patients, prospective patients and family members are encouraged to attend. Each month there will be a featured topic for discussion and occasionally we'll have a guest speaker on-hand, such as a Plastic Surgeon, Psychologist, Dietitian or Physical Therapist, to answer your questions.
