Here at Florida Bariatric Centers at Memorial Hospital of Tampa, our goal is your weight loss success! We go far beyond just providing a venue for surgery and have developed a life-changing program that includes nutritional guidance, support groups, a personalized course of care, and much more.
Our experienced, board-certified surgeons specialize in the surgical treatment of clinically obese patients by providing the adjustable Lap-Band(R) and sleeve gastrectomy surgeries.
Your Steps – Our Support
Our program maintains a multidisciplinary team that functions collectively to maximize our patients' weight loss results. This team consists of a surgeon, registered dietitian, registered nurse, psychologist, and patient care navigator. You will be accessing a program that is tailored to your individual needs. This will include detailed nutritional information for both pre and post-operative periods. Additionally, your surgeon will refer you to a psychologist who will provide an evaluation prior to your surgery. Finally, your care will be directed by a group of professionals including a program coordinator, clinical coordinator, and experienced office staff that will work with your team to help you maximize your weight loss.
