Our Quality Commitment
Hundreds of patients have completed surgical weight loss programs at PeaceHealth Medical Group Surgery. Research has shown that even a 10 percent loss of excess body weight results in significant improvements in diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea and other key weight-related illnesses. Significant weight loss typically correlates directly with ongoing health improvements, which can help lead to an improved quality of life.
