Free Weight-Loss Surgery Informational Seminars
If you're trying to decide if weight-loss surgery is right for you, we can help. Cooper's specially trained bariatric surgeons and advanced practice nurses devote 100 percent of their practice to the individualized care, treatment, and life-long support of patients choosing weight-loss surgery.
Cooper’s Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery Center meets rigorous criteria for safe, high-quality surgical care. As a result, the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) has named us an Accredited Comprehensive Center with Adolescent Qualifications.
For more information on the seminar, please visit our website or call 856.673.4500 to schedule an appointment.
Bariatric surgery procedures at Cooper use a minimally invasive approach for shorter recovery times and less post-operative pain. Procedures we offer include:
- Rou-en-Y gastric bypass
- Sleeve gastrectomy (gastric sleeve surgery)
Candidates for weight-loss surgery are about 100 pounds or more overweight and have a BMI greater than 40 or BMI greater than 35 with medical complications related to obesity, such as diabetes, hypertension, or sleep apnea.
