St. Claire Regional (SCR) now offers bariatric (weight loss) surgery, close to home! If your weight is negatively impacting your health and limiting your mobility, bariatric surgery might be right for you.

SCR general surgeons Jim Lynch, MD, and Jacob Perry, MD, are skilled in performing the vertical sleeve gastrectomy, commonly referred to as gastric sleeve. The gastric sleeve is a minimally invasive surgical weight loss solution that can result in a considerable amount of weight loss over a short period of time. Not only will you look better, but you’ll feel better, as you will dramatically reduce your risk of obesity-related health issues, like diabetes, heart and lung problems, stroke, sleep apnea, joint disease and many more.

Surgical weight loss can change your life! You may qualify for gastric sleeve surgery at SCR if you are over 18 years of age and have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of over 40, or your BMI is over 35 and you are experiencing obesity-related health issues.
