Weight Loss Surgery
Morton’s multidisciplinary team includes an experienced surgeon, nurses, dietitians, and psychologists with expertise in sleeve gastrectomy – also known as gastric sleeve surgery. All team members work closely with each other and the patients, providing education on weight loss methods and helping each individual decide which options are best for him or her. Compassionate, individualized care includes regular monitoring to ensure that weight is lost at a healthy rate and in a healthy manner.
Gastric sleeve surgeries are conveniently performed right at Morton Hospital, as well as pre- and post-operative appointments. The procedure, combined with lifestyle changes, may help patients achieve better health and an improved quality of life, often reducing health risks associated with conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, and degenerative joint disease.
