We're With You at Every Step
You are not alone in this journey. Our program is run by a team of specialists who are here to help you prepare for surgery, undergo a safe procedure, and maintain healthy lifestyle habits designed to ensure you achieve success.
Our Bariatric Surgeons
Evaluate your overall health and help recommend a weight loss procedure that's right for your condition. Their years of experience performing about 800 bariatric surgeries annually -- nearly 99 percent are minimally invasive -- ensure you have the safest, most positive outcome possible.
Our Nutritionist and Behavioral Health Providers
Meet with you individually and in group settings to address your concerns and recommend ways to overcome the challenges you face. We help you adopt a healthy lifestyle so you lose the weight and keep it off.
Our Nurses and Financial Counselors
Navigate you through your insurance benefits and requirements, evaluation, and testing. Our bariatric coordinator helps in the days before and following your surgery and hospitalization.
Meet Members of Our Team at Our Free Bariatric Seminars
You can learn more about obesity, meet members of our team, find out about the different types of bariatric surgery, and understand how our program works at our free weight loss informational seminars.
Our Monthly Support Groups
Give you the opportunity to meet people coping with similar experiences. We encourage you, your family and your friends to attend these groups in Durham or Raleigh before and after your weight loss surgery. Monthly topics cover nutrition, exercise, lifestyle changes, and more.
Our Facebook Group
Connects you (once you are a Duke patient) with others who are either waiting for surgery or have gone through a procedure. They talk about their struggles and achievements, ask questions, and share what works for them.
