Akkary Surgery Center offers both weight loss surgery and non-surgical weight loss options.
Bariatric surgery might be considered for patients with Body Mass Index (BMI) of 35 kg/m2 and above with obesity related disorders (e.g. high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea, etc) or 40 kg/m2 and above with or without obesity related disorders. In 2011, the FDA approved the use of the Lap band device for lower BMI.
We offer Bariatric Seminars on the second Thursday of every other month at 6:00 p.m. via Zoom. To register, please call our office at 304-241-1100.
