Bariatric Surgery Outcomes

Floyd Center for Bariatric Services offers a multidisciplinary weight loss surgery program designed to enhance successful outcomes.  Surgery alone is not a reliable solution for obesity but instead should be offered within the context of:

  • supportive, experienced bariatric nurses as coordinators
  • an experienced bariatric dietitian that sees patients preoperatively and at every follow-up visit
  • a network of specialists linked together to assure coordinated care
  • a supportive hospital with experienced nurses and a high definition laparoscopy suite
  • an outcomes management program to assure ongoing quality improvement. 

We are a nationally recognized Metabolical and Bariatric Surgery Quality Improvement Program. We adhere to the philosophy that "excellence is the gradual result of always striving to do better.”

Our surgery outcomes and comorbidities resolved are calculated using all surgery types. The comorbidities resolved are based on patient outcomes 12 months after surgery.  

 

In 2015, our center performed 156 bariatric surgeries with great success.
