How losing weight can save your life. How we can help.

A bariatric community meeting and seminar schedule is available here. When you’re fighting the ongoing battle against being overweight, it’s easy to feel defeated. But the costs of carrying too much weight are high. Frightfully high.

NEW! Our online seminar is designed to teach you about the different bariatric procedures we offer, the surgeons that perform them, and the lifestyle changes that come with surgery.

Excela Health’s medical professionals understand the many complex reasons that can cause a weight problem. We put together the latest surgical techniques with a focus on individual support, before and after surgery, to make your steps to a healthier life clearer, simpler, and easier.

Every person is different, with their own unique stories and personal goals.  We work to understand your needs, and then work towards finding the best weight loss approach for you.  Our patients share their own stories in order to help others undestand how weight loss surgeries can make a difference. We invite you to come to one of our community meetings or seminars and find out more. Call 1-877-771-1234 to take this the first step on your journey back to a normal, healthier life, the life you’ve always wanted.
