Expert Surgical Care Helping You Transform Your Health and Life

At OhioHealth Physician Group Bariatric Surgery, we have a passion for transforming people’s lives through weight loss. Our fellowship-trained surgeons are skilled in the latest minimally invasive surgical weight-loss techniques. Our experienced team will guide you toward both a healthier weight and improved overall health, from your first consultation to ongoing weight management support after your surgery.

As the first step in your journey toward a new life, we offer two convenient options to learn more about the benefits of our program: attend a free, in-person seminar or watch our online video to help you learn about our services.

If you're interested in our program, you must register to attend a free seminar by calling (614) 4-HEALTH (443.2584) or complete the Bariatrics Seminar Form prior to watching the video.

We are now offering telehealth appointments by phone or video to patients who do not need to be treated in person. Meet with your provider from the comfort of home using your smartphone, tablet or computer. Learn more.
