Since 2001 we have treated over 1000 patients with bariatric surgery. We are experienced with gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy. Most of our procedures have been accomplished a with minimally-invasive surgical techniques. Lastly, we offer reconstructive surgery and body contouring procedures to address redundant skin issues assocaited with massive weight loss.
Bariatric Surgery is offered to those who suffer from severe obesity (BMI 35-60), and is aimed at treating such medical conditions as high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and diabetes. It is recommended only for those who have failed with diligent prior efforts at weight loss. Use our BMI calculator to see if you qualify for surgical treatment.
Dr. John Pennings and Dr. Cory Richardson along with their Northwest Bariatrics team have been chosen as a BLIS bariatric surgery provider due to their exemplary outcomes allowing them to pass some incredible savings onto you. Receive 40% off the Sleeve Gastrectomy or Gastric Bypass procedures.
For those who are not yet ready for surgery but want to take a serious approach to weight issues, we recommend our Optifit program. In essence, this is the same program that all patients participate in prior to surgical treatment. It consists of metabolic testing, dietary counseling, behavioral counseling, prescription exercise, and adherence to a custom formula diet which produces rapid weight loss without surgery.
