Bariatric Surgery Care

The decision to undergo bariatric surgery could reshape your future. The weight-loss surgery program at New Hanover Regional Medical Center (NHRMC) has extraordinary success rates, backed by our quality designations and outcomes. Every year we help hundreds of patients lose weight, improve their health, and reduce their need to take medications for chronic health conditions.

We want to be your partner and help you attain the health benefits we have helped others achieve:

  • Average weight loss after surgery of 90-100 pounds, or 65 percent of an individual’s excess body weight
  • Weight loss sustained for 10 years or longer

Studies have proved that bariatric surgery patients may add 14 years to their life expectancy.

Extra Services To Help You Succeed

Embedded in our program are comprehensive support services from caring providers, who will guide you through every step of the process, from the presurgery assessment all the way through recovery and group support. Our focus is on helping you succeed and start fresh, with new behaviors supporting the new you.
