Walker County Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery
Comprehensive Weight Loss Solutions from Huntsville Memorial Hospital
Huntsville Memorial Hospital is now performing bariatric weight loss surgery
to assist obese patients to reach a healthier weight and lifestyle. Obesity
is defined as having an abnormal or excessive body fat accumulation.
As of 2010, 34% of United States adults were obese, which is over 1/3 of
the population. Obesity and obesity-related diseases can cause a host
of health complications and can impact nearly every organ in the body.
They are a leading cause of disability and death in Americans.
In recognizing the needs of our patients, Huntsville Memorial Hospital
has established a multidisciplinary Bariatric Program, including pre-surgery
counseling, nutrition education, post-surgical care, and support groups.
Our staff is committed to walk alongside you on your journey to a healthier
and happier lifestyle. You can rest assured in the level of care you will
receive, as our facility is recognized as a Bariatric Center of Excellence
by the Surgical Review Corporation in affiliation with Dr. Urmil Shukla
of the Texas Surgery Center.
If you or a loved one struggles with obesity, please contact our Bariatric
Coordinator, Lori Dupree, RN at 936-291-4318 for more information and
to sign up to attend a Bariatric Seminar.
