Hurley Bariatric Center
The Hurley Bariatric Center has been recognized as a Center of Excellence by six separate accrediting entities, including the American College of Surgeons. With the Bariatric Center of Excellence designation comes an ongoing commitment by our medical staff to provide the best care possible for our weight loss patients.
Our board certified bariatric surgeons specialize in bariatric surgeries including gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy and adjustable gastric band surgery. Our surgeons are credentialed in critical care at a Level 1 trauma center. Thus, post-surgical patients have 24/7 access to emergency care from skilled bariatric surgeons and clinicians.
Holistic Approach to Care
At the Hurley Bariatric Center, located in Flint, Michigan, we believe in comprehensive health and take a holistic approach to bariatric care. Weight loss surgery is not the best option for everyone. We want to make sure that patients recommended for bariatric surgery have the best possible chances for a positive and sustainable weight loss outcome.
Thus, our holistic approach to comprehensive health care is based on the following principles:
Principle: We recognize every person is unique and deserves personalized treatment in a setting that meets their individual needs.
Approach: We treat each person with respect, dignity, and compassion.
Principle: We know that everyone coming to us wants to succeed in regaining control over their lives.
Approach: Our multi-disciplinary philosophy combines nutrition and exercise counseling, and behavior modification with weight loss surgery. We use a comprehensive health approach to maximize your chances for successful outcome.
Principle: We know that choosing weight loss surgery is not easy and that it helps to have a partner in the process.
Approach: In addition to emotional and social support before, during, and after surgery, we provide you with all the information you need to make this life-changing decision.
Principle: We know patients want cutting edge, evidence-based approaches to surgical weight loss.
Approach: We provide the procedure that is best suited to your situation. One size does not fit all.
These are the foundational principles upon which this program’s holistic approach and comprehensive health care reputation was built and upon which it stands today.
