Meet our Doctors
Obesity puts you at risk for more than 40 diseases and medical conditions, like Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, orthopedic issues, and certain cancers. If diets and previous weight-loss efforts have failed you, you may be a candidate for the most effective treatment for obesity: weight-loss surgery.
Saint Luke’s Center for Surgical Weight Loss can help you lose your excess weight and keep it off for life. Our centers at Saint Luke’s Hospital of Kansas City and Saint Luke's South Hospital in Overland Park, Kan., are accredited by the MBSAQIP. This distinction is earned by programs that provide superior surgical care and achieve top levels of performance.
We offer four types of laparoscopic weight-loss surgery: gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, and duodenal switch. All four procedures are considered minimally invasive. Our surgeons perform the surgeries through small incisions in your abdomen by using laparoscopes. This speeds your recovery time and minimizes the risk of complications. Both before and after surgery, you’ll find Saint Luke’s uniquely equipped to offer a full range of support services, including diet, exercise, and emotional counseling.
The physicians and staff of Saint Luke’s Center for Surgical Weight Loss know you may be exploring many options before making this life-changing decision. We invite you to attend a free, no-obligation educational seminar. You’ll meet a bariatric surgeon, learn more about the four types of weight-loss surgery, and have a chance to ask questions before deciding whether surgery is the right answer. Seminars are offered at four of Saint Luke’s metro hospitals every month.
