If you struggle with obesity, you may find weight loss success through surgery.

Bariatric (or weight loss) surgery is a treatment option for those who have not found long-term success with other weight loss attempts. Bariatric surgery reduces the amount of food your stomach can store which helps you eat less because you feel full sooner. This leads to weight loss.

Health Quest offers bariatric surgery at Putnam Hospital Center and Northern Dutchess Hospital. Read more about their bariatric programs:
