Bariatric surgery, and the lifestyle changes required to achieve your desired outcome, requires a serious commitment on your part. But your commitment also comes with a promise from the Bariatric and Metabolic Interdisciplinary Clinic (BMI Clinic) to do everything we can to help you succeed. Stanford's Bariatric Surgery Clinic is the first Center of Excellence in Northern California to achieve Level 1A certification by the American College of Surgeons.
Care and Treatment of Bariatric and Metabolic Disorders
Our Team Puts You at the Center
As you begin your journey toward reaching your weight loss goals, your Stanford team will be with you every step of the way. Not only will you be the focus of our efforts, you'll be our team's most important member. Because we can't succeed unless you're fully committed to succeeding too.
All the help you need, all in one place
While your team will include a Stanford surgeon, achieving your long-term goals requires constant attention and support in any number of healthcare disciplines. Stanford has pioneered a multi-disciplinary approach to weight loss programs that considers every aspect of your health, and all the factors that contribute to reaching your goals.
Bariatric (weight loss) surgery is an important part of that program, but before and after your surgery, you'll have Stanford specialists from nutrition, psychology, and cardiology working with you as well as education and support groups to help you succeed.
We put all of these resources at your disposal, for as long as it takes you to reach your weight loss and lifestyle goals.
Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
