Weight Loss Programs

We provide the support to make you successful

From your first class on bariatric weight loss until the day you reach your weight-loss goal, we’re here to support you. Fountain Valley Regional Hospital and Medical Center’s Surgical Weight Loss program was created to make your experience as easy and comfortable as possible. Our unique program was developed with direction from our medical director, who also is a bariatric surgeon. We see patients from Orange County, Southern California and worldwide.

Your weight-loss team

Throughout the process, you’ll work with your very own team focused on your health — what we call Team You. Physicians, nursing staff, a patient coordinator, patient counselors and dietitians help you along this journey. You’ll have access to a program professional or physician at any time of the day, during the week and on weekends.

How the weight-loss process works

The first step is evaluating your health. Your team will identity complications related to your weight, such as high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease. Treatment can be set up for these factors. We will establish weight loss goals and help you decide which bariatric procedure would be best for you: gastric bypass, gastric sleeve or gastric banding. During this time, Team You will work with you to design a comprehensive weight-loss program. Most likely this will involve a combination of diet, exercise, lifestyle changes, psychological counseling and support. We will continue to monitor your success and make adjustments when needed.
