Duke Weight Loss Surgery Virtual Tour

For many people suffering from obesity, diet and exercise are not enough. Weight loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, has proved to be an effective option.

Duke offers an individually tailored approach to bariatric surgery. Nearly 99 percent of our bariatric surgeries are completed using minimally invasive surgical techniques, meaning they require only small incisions. Smaller incisions can translate to less pain, fewer complications, smaller scars, and a faster recovery time.

Duke’s in-house bariatric team is comprised of six fellowship-trained surgeons, a physician assistant, a clinical psychologist, registered dieticians, an endocrinologist, nurses, and other dedicated support staff.

Our program is designated a Center of Excellence and Center of Distinction by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP), Blue Cross Blue Shield, Optum Health, and Cigna. Only centers that meet strict criteria including high quality care and positive patient outcomes receive this designation.
