Since ASA’s foundation in 1998, we have performed more than 3,000 laparoscopic bariatric surgeries.

Most people are able to return to work within one to two weeks of their surgery.
Laparoscopic surgical procedures are a safe, effective way to achieve long-lasting weight loss if you are 100 pounds or more overweight or have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 or higher. You may be seeking bariatric surgery because you are at this weight or BMI, which is classified as morbid or ‘clinically severe’ obesity.
Morbid obesity is linked with a number of serious health conditions, including metabolic syndrome, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, obstructive sleep apnea, and joint and back problems. Being morbidly obese increases your risk of several cancers and is linked with early death. It can also entail a host of social, psychological, and economic problems.
At ASA, we combine our leading surgical expertise with the support and encouragement you need for long-term success. Call us today at (256) 880-1977 to learn more about how you can achieve permanent weight loss through bariatric surgery.
