Obesity is a disease -- one that hurts your quality of life and may even cut your life short. The Duke Center for Metabolic and Weight Loss Surgery can help you take your life back through our comprehensive program of education and care.
Our program brings together surgeons, physicians, psychologists, nutritionists, devoted nursing and anesthesia teams, and a staff that is committed to seeing you through every step of the process, both before your surgery and in the months and years following.
Our patients lose an average of more than 70 percent of excess weight. They also see major improvements or even complete resolution of joint pain, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, diabetes, and other weight-related health problems.
