Northside Hospital - Bariatric Center

Bariatric Center

For people who have been obese for years, the decision to undergo weight loss surgery or other bariatric procedures is life changing. Surgical and non-surgical weight loss options are designed to treat obesity by changing the amount of food a person can consume and, therefore, reducing the amount of food a patient needs to feel satisfied. At Northside Hospital, we have various options available for people who are significantly overweight, where diet and exercise have failed. Undergoing a bariatric procedure can be a life-changing decision that has the potential to resolve or improve serious obesity-related medical conditions and enhance a patient's quality of life.

Northside Hospital is committed to helping people battle obesity and take control of their lives, celebrating over 35 years of bariatric excellence. Our Atlanta and Forsyth locations are accredited by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP).

When it comes to choosing where to have your weight loss procedure, there is a lot to consider. Choosing Northside's Center for Weight Loss gives you access to a comprehensive array of weight loss services including state-of-the-art surgery at our Atlanta, Cherokee and Forsyth locations. We were the first in Georgia to perform single-incision weight loss surgery, resulting in fewer scars for the patient. Our dedicated weight loss nursing unit allows us to offer our patients a specialized approach through highly trained professionals. Pre-surgery informational seminars and aftercare support groups also are available.

An interdisciplinary team of weight loss experts including board-certified surgeons, nurses, dietitians and other health care professionals, work to provide the best possible and highly personalized care for all patients. Bariatric program specialists personally guide each patient through the process from their one-on-one pre-operation teaching through their operation and recovery.

With an expert staff and a foundation built on state-of-the-art technology, the Northside Center for Weight Loss' pioneering bariatric program is poised to lead the charge against obesity for many more years to come.
