Classes & Events

The surgical weight loss (bariatrics) program at Dixie Regional Medical Center helps overweight people successfully obtain a healthy body weight and an improved quality of life through a variety of surgical procedures. We've been offering this service in St. George since January of 2004. We treat patients from throughout southern Utah, northern Arizona, and southern Nevada.

Who is a good candidate for surgical weight loss?

If you have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of greater than 40 and other medically managed weight loss programs have failed to help you reach a healthy weight, you may be a good candidate for weight loss surgery. If your BMI is over 35 and you have significant comorbidities — serious diseases related to obesity, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease — surgery may be a good option.

Basic information about the procedures we offer:

Gastric Bypass
The bowel is cut and rerouted to create a small pouch that releases food slowly, creating a full sensation after eating very little food.
