Bariatric Surgery Services

Bariatric surgery — or surgery for weight loss — is an important tool in helping people lose significant amounts of excess weight. Bariatric surgeons also perform nonsurgical procedures to help with weight loss. When diet and exercise haven't made an impact or when underlying health problems prevent you from losing excess weight, a bariatric procedure is an option.

To find a bariatric support group or information session at Rush, please visit the Rush University Medical Center calendar.
