Medical Director Marc Lussier, MD, FACS has developed a comprehensive weight loss surgery program, consisting of a team of experts including a bariatric surgeon, a nutritionist, registered nurses, and counselors whose purpose is to assist you in losing weight both safely and successfully.

The goal of our bariatric weight loss surgery program at Town Center Surgery is to provide patients who are suffering from morbid obesity with the tools they may need to lose weight and live healthier lifestyles, with less risk of developing severe medical conditions that obesity can cause. We also provide patients with access to support groups, mental health professionals, and an extensive aftercare program that helps you in your progression for months, and even years, after surgery.

Patients will undergo a consultation that will discuss all aspects of weight loss surgery in depth. Our weight loss surgeon will also advise you on procedures such as LAP-BAND® System and REALIZE™ Band surgery, and help you determine which procedures will be best for your needs. All risks, benefits, and alternatives to laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding weight loss procedures will be discussed with you well-before you undergo surgery.

Following your initial consultation, you will be evaluated in a number of areas to determine if you qualify as a weight loss surgery candidate. These areas include both physical and psychological attributes, as well as your commitment to undergoing the various dietary and lifestyle habits you will need to adapt after surgery. You are always encouraged to ask questions, and we are available at any time to address your concerns.
