Baptist Health Medical Center-Hot Spring County is proud to provide state of the art surgical care to the residents of Malvern and surrounding communities.
The ideal treatment for obesity is diet and exercise, but for some patients, weight reduction surgery may be necessary to reach a healthy weight. Patients who are extremely obese as well as those who have a lesser degree of obesity coupled with sleep apnea, heart disease, poorly controlled diabetes and unmanageable hypertension may be candidates for bariatric surgery. It is important that those considering any procedure be well informed about the bariatric operation, and highly-motivated to follow a post-surgery care plan to lose and keep weight off.
At Baptist Health Medical Center-Hot Spring County, we offer Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy or laparoscopic adjustable gastric binding. The type of bariatric surgery recommended to a patient depends on the amount of weight he or she needs to lose, as well as their age and health history.
