Mosaic Life Care - Bariatric Care has been designated as an Accredited Bariatric Center by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP). “This is our way of ensuring our patients that we are providing the best and safest bariatric surgery program possible,” says Mosaic Life Care - Bariatric Care Medical Director Phillip M. Hornbostel, MD. “From a patient perspective, being a MBSAQIP Accredited Bariatric Center should drive their decision on where to have their surgery for two reasons — safety and efficacy.”
Please join us for one of the information sessions listed below to learn more about surgical weight-loss options at Mosaic Life Care. During these sessions, participants will learn about the cause and effects of obesity, how to qualify for weight-loss surgery and the lifestyle modifications that accompany weight-loss surgery. We will also walk you through the advantages and disadvantages of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, laparoscopic gastric bypass and lap duodenal switch.
Surgical weight loss has been proven to be the most effective option for long-term health improvement. For those who have exhausted all other options in achieving a healthy weight, Bariatric Care offers three different initial surgical options including laparoscopic gastric band, gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy. Bariatric Care also offers gastric bypass revision and gastric band adjustments for those who have already had a procedure.
Support groups are provided for patients who have had bariatric surgery. Patients are advised that regular attendance (>6/year) at a support group can enhance weight management to a statistically-significant degree in our program, and are urged to attend.
In order to achieve the best results, weight loss surgery must be part of a comprehensive weight loss program dedicated to achieving a healthy lifestyle. Our program is designed to prepare you for surgery, educate you about the surgical options available, offer the safest, most effective operations, and provide you with all the tools you will need after surgery to get the best results possible.
