Bariatrics in San Juan County

Weight Loss Surgery at Blue Mountain Hospital

Weight loss, in theory, should be simple: If you burn more calories than you consume, you will drop pounds. In reality, diet and exercise are very challenging, and what’s more, it’s way harder to burn calories than it is to consume them. Weight loss surgery, also called bariatrics, is a proven tool that results in sustained, long-term weight loss and maintenance. If you have exhausted all attempts to lose weight, bariatric surgery could be the perfect catalyst to your weight-loss journey.

Obesity Threatens Your Health

Carrying extra weight isn’t just a cosmetic problem, but it often has long-lasting weight-related health risks physically, socially, and emotionally.

Common obesity-related health issues are:

  • GERD
  • Type II diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Breathing problems
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • High blood pressure
  • Gynecological problems in women

You Can Make a Change & We Can Help

Throughout your experience with bariatric surgery at Blue Mountain Hospital, you will hear that weight loss surgery is not a magical cure for obesity. It is an incredible way to get you started, but the real magic comes from you and your commitment to losing weight. The shift in mindset to viewing your weight control as an ongoing, long-term effort rather than a quick diet you can give up on once you hit your desired weight is not sustainable and causes people to lose hope. But there is hope, and we can help. Our surgical team, dieticians, and support group are here for you every step of the way and are dedicated to helping you achieve your goal and stay there.

“I wish I could go back in time and make myself get bariatric surgery sooner. It had such a drastic positive effect in my life that I wish I would’ve had the surgery years before. There were so many things that I missed out on because of my obesity. I always tell people that if you are considering it then stop dragging your feet and get it done because you won’t regret it,” - Bariatric Surgery Patient at BMH
