Transform your life

Restore your health and regain confidence with a proven long-term weight-loss solution. The weight loss surgery team at Delray Medical Center is ready to guide you on your journey to a healthier and more active life.

If you’re 100 pounds or more overweight you may be a candidate for medical weight-loss surgery at Delray Medical Center. The reasons are more than cosmetic. People who are more than 30 percent over their ideal weight often experience serious medical problems, such as heart disease and diabetes, and may be at increased risk for certain cancers.

Weight-loss surgery can help you successfully reach a healthier weight and give you the opportunity to live a longer, healthier and more active life. Read some of our weight loss success stories here.

Located on the campus of Delray Medical Center, the Surgical Weight Loss Program specializes in multi-disciplinary care, and our experienced team offers some of the most effective procedures available for surgical weight loss in South Florida including: adjustable gastric banding, roux-en-Y gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy. We also offer management of existing bariatric patients to include lap band adjustments and revisional surgery.

Weight loss surgery is generally designed for those with a body mass index (BMI) equal to or greater than 40, or equal to or greater than 35 with serious co-morbidities. Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding is also FDA-approved for weight loss surgery in people with a BMI of 30 to 35 who have at least one obesity-related condition. Weight loss surgery is considered safe, but like many types of surgery, it does have risks. Consult with your physician about the risks and benefits of weight loss surgery.
