Mercy’s Bariatric Program is a leader in weight loss surgery providing individualized, compassionate care to help you reach your weight loss goals. Mercy’s centralized location offers easy access via public transportation and major expressways and our team of experts are committed to helping you take control of your weight once and for all.
At Mercy, bariatric surgery is not just a surgical procedure, but also a change in lifestyle, offering a comprehensive approach with continuous support throughout your journey before and after surgery. We offer a pre-operative group session with our dietician where participants learn about nutrition, exercise, healthy living/healthy food choices and how it will improve their overall health.
Mercy knows that losing weight isn't simply mind over matter and many men and women struggle with their weight despite repeated dieting. For some overweight and obese people, diet and exercise alone simply cannot achieve long-term adequate weight loss. For these individuals, Mercy offers Bariatric weight-loss surgical options. Mercy continues to be a leader in innovative weight loss surgery, performing more LAP-BAND® surgeries in the state of Illinois and offering a Laparo-Endoscopic Single-Site Surgery (LESS) option which leaves no visible scarring. At Mercy, we are helping those living with obesity experience long-term, permanent weight loss.
