With Treatments Tailored to You
- Find Out if Medical Weight Loss Is Right for You
Your weight can be influenced by everything from genetics to emotions to existing health problems. We know that weight loss isn't always easy, but you never have to go at it alone. AdventHealth Carrollwood, formerly Florida Hospital Carrollwood, offers compassionate, personalized care that supports the whole-person health of our neighbors in the Tampa Bay community. From bariatric specialists to chaplains and pastoral care to expert surgeons who are skilled in the most-advanced and minimally invasive procedures, it’s our mission to develop a tailored wellness plan that addresses your personal needs and concerns while working to support your overall health and weight management goals.
If you have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 (approximately 100 pounds over ideal body weight for men and 80 pounds over ideal body weight for women) or a BMI of 35 or more with an associated condition such as diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea or obesity-related heart disease, surgical weight loss might be right for you. Contact Us to set up a comprehensive consultation with a member of our team and calculate your BMI with our BMI Calculator.
- Skilled, Experienced Experts in Bariatric Procedures
No two people are exactly alike, and your personal weight loss journey is as unique as you are. If your team determines that you’re a candidate for bariatric surgery, you’ll have access to exceptional surgeons, nurses, and other team members right here at AdventHealth Carrollwood. Some of the minimally invasive weight-loss surgeries we offer include:
- Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band
- Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
- Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
From determining which medical weight-loss procedure is right for you to supporting your ongoing weight management and maintenance, we’ll be at your side every step of the way. Our advanced bariatric surgical options offer many benefits, including faster healing times, minimal scarring, and a quicker return to your best life.
- Whole-Person Treatment for Your Body, Mind, and Spirit
