Scripps Clinic, Pacific Bariatric Surgery Program
Our program is part of the Scripps Mercy Hospital Center for Bariatric Surgery, the region's oldest Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence, as recognized by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS). What sets us apart is the the support provided to patients, from introductory informational sessions to pre- and post-surgical consultations with a variety of specialists, and ongoing lifelong support.
Surgery and immediate post-operative care take place at Scripps Mercy Hospital, a 700-bed, full-service acute-care facility in San Diego and a designated Bariatric Center of Excellence. In a specially designed unit, you’ll receive care and support from Scripps Mercy's dedicated staff that have been specially trained to recognize and meet your unique needs throughout your hospital stay.
Patients particularly appreciate the special touches, including furniture and equipment they can fit into comfortably, hospital gowns in larger sizes and a clinically accurate scale designed to accommodate up to 880 lbs.
Obesity is a debilitating disease that affects much more than your waistline. It's a physical, emotional and social burden. For many, morbid obesity has become a way of life, something that diets, medication and exercise cannot change. Our experienced surgical weight loss team has helped more than 17,000 patients.
