The only Center of Excellence
in Central Florida
For millions of Americans, obesity is a lifelong struggle that not only affects one’s self-image, but their overall health and well-being. The complications of obesity can seriously affect one's ability to live a full and active life.
Unfortunately, a lifetime of yo-yo dieting, exercise, and sacrifice doesn’t always result in significant, sustainable weight loss. It is an uphill battle for many people who must deal with obesity on a daily basis. Fortunately, there is another option – bariatric surgery, otherwise known as obesity surgery or weight loss surgery.
At the Metabolic Medicine & Surgery Institute at Florida Hospital Celebration Health, we can offer you a new lease on life at our bariatric surgery center in Central Florida. Through a combination of state-of-the-art weight loss surgical techniques (the Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, the Sleeve Gastrectomy, and the Adjustable Gastric Band), education, exercise, and lifelong support, we can help you reclaim a life of health and wellness.
If you are a candidate for weight loss surgery or obesity surgery, the Metabolic Medicine & Surgery Institute has the obesity surgery experts, bariatric procedures, and overall weight loss experience you need to help you achieve long-term success.

The Center of Excellence designation is administered by the Surgical Review Corporation, an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the safety, efficacy, and efficiency of bariatric and metabolic surgical care worldwide. The designation is awarded to both a surgeon as well as the facility and the qualifications are verified through a rigorous site inspection and extensive research.
The benefits of bariatric surgery in achieving sustainable weight loss have been well established. But, recent research is showing that bariatric surgery can also help reduce the effects of certain diseases or eliminate them all together.
