Bariatric Surgery at the Weight Loss Center of Arkansas

Surgical & Medical Weight Loss Solutions

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Weight Loss Center of Arkansas. We are a premier weight loss surgery practice dedicated to exceptional outcomes and the highest in patient care and comfort. Bariatric surgery is currently the only long-term effective weight loss solution for those suffering from obesity and its related diseases such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea and more. Our bariatric program, led by Dr. Russell Gornichec offers Gastric BypassGastric sleeve, sleeve gastrectomyGastric banding (Lap-Band), Imbricated band (IBand) and Duodenal switch surgery for those suffering from obesity in the Benton, Hot Springs and greater Little Rock, Arkansas areas.

Bariatric surgery is not appropriate for every patient. As a result, our office and the FDA have laid out guidelines for qualification for bariatric surgery. Indeed, weight loss surgery should only be considered when more conservative treatment options have not been successful. Unfortunately, self-directed diet and exercise programs fail in the vast majority of patients with many regaining all the weight they lost and sometimes, more. While bariatric surgery may seem like a drastic option, it is important to compare the risks of a surgical procedure with the risks of doing nothing about morbid obesity.

For those that do not qualify for bariatric surgery, or who are looking to jumpstart their weight loss after surgery, we offer a comprehensive physician supervised medical weight loss program. With extensive weight loss education, dietary modification, and support, our patients routinely experience excellent results. Learn more about our medical weight loss program.

The first step in your journey to excess weight loss and improved health through bariatric surgery is to sign up for a free seminar held monthly at our offices. We look forward to welcoming you into our family of patients and assisting you in changing your life and your health forever!
