Akron General - Your Source For Bariatric Weight-loss Surgery

For many severely overweight people, repeated attempts at diet and exercise have been unsuccessful. This often results in depression, frustration and a sense of hopelessness. If you or someone you know has been unable to lose weight through diet and exercise or a medical weight loss management program, help is available. Weight loss surgery, or bariatric surgery, may be an appropriate option.

Akron General has a dedicated, knowledgeable, sensitive team of weight loss specialists who are here to support you and help you find the best, and most healthy, solutions for your weight loss difficulties.
