Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric Surgery

If you are experiencing the affects of being overweight and are considering various weight loss solutions, the team at Allied Physicians of Michiana specializes in the cause, prevention and treatment of obesity.   While exercise and lifestyle changes help individuals lose weight, some patients choose bariatric surgery to assist their weight loss.  Surgery can lead to long term weight loss, recovery from diabetes, and improvement in cardiovascular risk factors among other health improvements.

Dr. Luis Benavente is fellowship trained in bariatric surgery, offering a wide range of surgical procedures for the treatment of obesity. He will work with patients to assess which option is best based on their unique health risks. Dr. Benavente partners with the bariatric team and resources at Elkhart General Hospital.
