You are Not Alone

Approximately 65 percent of Americans are considered overweight, about 25 percent are considered obese and about 4 percent are considered morbidly obese. These numbers are on the rise. That’s why at Placentia-Linda Hospital, our team of highly-qualified, board certified and Center of Excellence trained physicians and staff are committed to helping you lose weight through our comprehensive program with the quality and service excellence you’ve come to expect from us.

We offer several different weight-loss surgery options. Each involves modifying the stomach and/or intestines to decrease the amount of food that you can eat and some procedures change the normal absorption of the food you eat.

Our Surgery Options Include:

  • LAP-BAND®
  • Gastric Sleeve
  • Gastric Bypass
  • Revisional Surgery

If you have tried many options to lose weight including nutrition, exercise and medical expertise and have been unsuccessful, you, along with your doctor, may be considering weight loss surgery.  With the Weight Loss Surgery Program at Placentia-Linda Hospital, we offer a customized approach in a safe hospital setting.

We focus on the entire “you” –getting you healthy, getting you living a longer and more active lifestyle and…helping you ensure long-term success. 

Obesity can lead to serious, life-threatening illnesses and morbid obesity increases that risk. Health issues that may be resolved or improved include:

  • Hypertension
  • High Cholesterol
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Sleep Apnea
  • Arthritis / joint pain may be helped or improved

You may also have a much greater risk of developing a variety of serious medical conditions compared to individuals who are not obese and you may develop health problems at a younger age.
