For many obese patients, long-term, sustained weight loss can be elusive, despite strict diet and exercise programs. Many struggle daily with their weight and related medical conditions such as high blood pressure, sleep apnea and diabetes, as well as with the stigma of obesity.

To provide additional help for these patients, the Center for Bariatric Surgery in Providence, RI, a program of Rhode Island Hospital and The Miriam Hospital, offers new hope and a long-term solution. Bariatrics is the field of medicine that specializes in treating obesity, and bariatric surgery refers to surgery that promotes weight loss. For most patients, this will be a new beginning.

Our dedicated team of specialists—surgeons, physicians, nurse practitioners, behavioral therapists, nutritionists, physical therapists and nurses with expertise in weight loss surgery—is committed to helping you throughout this life-changing journey.
