The UNC Regional Physicians Bariatric & Weight Loss Center is a resource of bariatic surgery and medical weight loss for patients across the country who seek the healthful improvement that significant weight loss can have on an individual’s lifestyle and health. High blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea, elevated cholesterol and emotional well-being are just a few of the complications faced by people who are severely overweight. Because the health consequences of obesity can be so severe and because obesity has reached epidemic proportions in our community and across America, High Point Regional is pleased to offer this great comprehensive center to help you reach your weight loss goals.
We are proud to offer several options for weight loss including: vertical sleeve gastrectomy, duodenal switch (SIPS procedure) ReShape
