East Coast Bariatrics at Halifax Health
is more than a surgical weight loss program. Our team of experts focuses on providing comprehensive support, from the moment you decide to change your lifestyle. We understand that this process does not end when the surgery is complete and that this moment is when your journey truly begins.
Our surgical program, established nearly 15 years ago, is unique to our community, and our multidisciplinary team of professionals includes physicians, nurses, dietitians, exercise physiologists and mental health professionals. There are members of our team that have gone through this process themselves and understand what a lifestyle change this really is.
Each member of our bariatric team is dedicated to helping patients improve their medical risk factors and reduce their weight through a comprehensive approach to weight management that includes:
- Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
- Laparoscopic Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy
- Laparoscopic Duodenal Switch
- Laparoscopic Bariatric Surgery Revisions
- Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding (Lapband® and Realize®)
- Orbera® Balloon
- Non-Surgical Medically Managed Weight Loss
Our emphasis is to work together with each patient and help them understand that weight loss is an overall life changing decision towards an improvement in health, which targets the goal of wellness. Research has proven that surgical weight loss can help reduce many risk factors such as diabetes, hypertension and sleep apnea.
We are with you every step of the way, and offer support to ensure that you have a solid foundation following your surgery to live a healthy and full life.
