Your Bariatric Program

Minimally Invasive Surgeons of Ocala, PLLC Wants to Thank You for Considering Our Services and We Want to Welcome You to Our Family.

Bariatric Surgery

In North America morbid obesity has become an epidemic that has significantly worsened on a yearly basis.  Approximately 30% of our population is morbidly obese and at least 50% is overweight.

 Bariatric surgery offers patients the opportunity of loosing weight, improve or resolve other medical co-morbidities, increase productivity and regain their life back.

Undergoing bariatric surgery should not be taken lightly.  It is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your life.

It is my recommendation that you take the time to research not only what operation is best for you but also what program and surgeon is going to help you accomplish your goals.
