​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Outcomes for Floyd Center for Bariatric Surgery 

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 nurse coordinators

  • an experienced bariatric dietitian who sees patients before surgery 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. 

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

     Surgery Outcomes

    Bariatric surgery has a greater impact than weight loss. The numbers below represent the percentage of our patients who had a disease prior to surgery but no longer suffer from that disease following surgery. Our outcomes trend higher than the national average mainly due our expert team's dedication to education, nutrition and after-surgery support.
