At the Harbin Clinic Bariatric Program, we offer a truly comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to weight loss. Our team consists of an experienced, fellowship-trained bariatric surgeon; medical doctors dedicated to obese patients; a bariatric nurse coordinator; bariatric dietitians; exercise physiologists at the Harbin Clinic Vitality Wellness Center experienced in developing programs for the obese; psychiatrists and psychologists; a specialty team of bariatric nurses and Operating Room personnel at Floyd Medical Center; cardiologists; pulmonologists; gastroenterologists; an endocrinologist; anesthesiologists; plastic & reconstructive surgeons, a sleep lab; and supportive office staff. We are fortunate to work together with Floyd Medical Center, who is also committed to caring for the obese patient. We feel that there is no simple cure to obesity, but that it requires the dedication of a team of physicians and allied health professionals that are committed to helping you achieve successful weight loss and a healthier life.
Weight loss surgery is major surgery. Its growing use to treat morbid obesity is the result of three factors: Our current knowledge of the significant health risks of morbid obesity; the relatively low risk and complications of weight loss procedures versus not having surgery; and the ineffectiveness of current non-surgical approaches to produce sustained weight loss. This site will provide valuable information about the benefits and risks of weight loss surgery. However, the best way to get a full assessment of your condition is to schedule a consultation to determine if weight loss surgery may be an option for you.
We are recognized as a Center of Excellence (COE) and have performed approximately 1,000 weight loss surgeries that include laparoscopic roux-en-y gastric bypass, laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy. We look forward to helping you on your journey toward improved health. Please contact us at 706-378-8140 to schedule an appointment.
