Weight Management and Bariatric Services in Plant City, Florida

Tired of battling obesity? So are 58 million other Americans. At South Florida Baptist Hospital, we understand the emotional and physical havoc chronic obesity can cause. That's why we offer a surgical weight-loss program (bariatric surgery) that can help you lose weight, and keep it off.

Obesity is a major risk factor for hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus and some cancers in both men and women. Obesity-related medical conditions contribute to 300,000 deaths annually, making it the second leading cause of preventable death in the nation.

Your weight loss journey includes learning about your surgical procedure - with the help of our weight loss professionals, you can learn more about adjustable gastric banding and sleeve gastrectomy.

To determine whether you may be a candidate, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are you at least 90 pounds overweight?
  • Are you fighting hypertension, cardiovascular disease or diabetes?
  • Have you tried every diet, without successful lasting results?
  • Have you battled obesity most of your life?
  • Are you ready to look and feel better?

If you answered yes to most of these questions, then you may be a candidate for weight loss surgery.
