About Our Program
Bothwell Regional Health Center’s bariatric program was one of the first in Missouri.
The decision to have weight loss surgery is an important one; equally important is choosing a bariatric surgery program that is safe and comprehensive. We have a knowledgeable and dedicated health care team that combines the expertise of your surgeon with the nutrition counseling, physical therapy and mental health support to ensure you have the best experience possible.
To be successful at long-term weight loss, you must be fully informed about the surgery, including what to expect during and after the surgery. Nutrition classes will be held before and after your surgery to help you achieve your goals.
To prepare for our surgical procedures, Bothwell Surgical Services conducts extensive testing to ensure that you are a good candidate for the surgery. This underscores our commitment to your safety.
Each insurance policy may contain additional requirements for surgery qualifications. Please be sure to check with your insurance company to determine what specific requirements apply to you.
