With the weight loss surgery team at PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend, you are not alone. We're here to help you succeed — for good. 

Am I a candidate for Bariatric Surgery?

Here are three things you can do now to help determine if bariatric surgery is right for you:

In general, the criteria for weight loss surgery is based on your age, body mass index (BMI), and health conditions that are caused or worsened by obesity. We are able to accept most insurances at PeaceHealth Bariatrics, however, not all insurance companies have a bariatric benefit. We encourage you to call the phone number on the back of your insurance card to make sure bariatric surgery is covered under your plan.

Before entering our program, you are required to view our Informational Seminar to prepare you for what to expect. We provide an overview of the program and the caregivers and surgeons who will support you on your weight loss journey, discuss the surgeries we offer and share insurance information.
