Obesity is a disease that can be treated medically. Marshall Medical Center offers both medical weight loss and bariatric surgery, complemented by expert nutrition advice and behavioral health counseling to maximize results and long term success.  Weight loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, is a medical procedure resulting in dramatic weight loss. The procedure surgically limits the amount of food you can eat and changes how your body absorbs nutrients. Weight loss surgery is recommended for those severely overweight, especially when obesity negatively affects health.
