Overview

At the UF Health Weight Loss Surgery Center, our primary goal is getting you back to a happy and healthy life.

Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program LogoAt the UF Health Weight Loss Surgery Center, we don’t just focus on surgical options for weight loss. We also are dedicated to working with each patient to create a healthy lifestyle. As a center accredited by the American Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program, you are guided through your weight loss journey by a team of experts, including fellowship-trained bariatric surgeons, nurses, psychologists, cardiologists, pulmonologists, medicine physicians, nephrologists, endocrinologists and nutritionists. As part of an academic health center, we are constantly moving medicine forward through innovative research and quality improvement projects, which means better care and better results for you for a lifetime.

Please peruse our website for more information about obesity, our team, procedures we offer, qualifying criteria and what you can expect after surgery. If you are ready to start a happier, healthier life, you will need to take one of our educational seminars prior to making an appointment. You have two options: attend an in-person seminar or view our online seminar and take a quiz afterwards that confirms you’ve completed the seminar successfully.
