Duke Center for Metabolic and Weight Loss Surgery, Durham Clinic

Type:Duke Regional Hospital Outpatient Department
Hospital-based clinics are an extension of Duke Health hospitals and have additional facility charges. Some insurance companies process bills with a deductible and coinsurance rather than as a co-pay as for an office visit. This may impact the amount of the bill you are responsible for after payment from your insurance plan. Check with your insurance company before your visit to determine what your responsibility will be.

As a Bariatric Center of Excellence, Duke provides safe, effective, high-quality bariatric care to people who have been unable to maintain weight loss through diet, exercise and/medication. Most of the 800 bariatric surgeries our surgeons perform each year take place at Duke Regional Hospital, but people may also undergo bariatric surgery at Duke Raleigh Hospital and Alamance Regional Medical Center.

Because weight loss surgery is just the beginning of your journey, we make it as convenient as possible for you to receive your care. At this bariatric clinic in Durham, you may attend:

  • Free information sessions to learn about obesity and help you decide if weight loss surgery is right for you. These are scheduled periodically throughout the year.
  • Your first patient evaluation where you can learn about your options, changes in lifestyle habits, and the expenses associated with weight loss surgery.
  • Pre- and post-surgical follow-up appointments with your surgeon, and other members of your team including physician assistants, nutritionists, and psychologists.
  • Monthly support groups to help you face the challenges that may arise after surgery.

Accepted Insurance

Duke Health contracts with most major health insurance carriers and transplant networks, including the ones listed below. Before scheduling your appointment, we strongly recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the Duke Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any co-payments, co–insurances, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with Duke, your out of pocket liability may be higher. We will contact you regarding your coverage and patient liability. If you are uninsured, learn more about our financial assistance policy.
