Obesity is caused by a variety of factors, including your environment, your genetic predispositions and your psychological state. To reverse the progression of weight gain, you will need to address all the factors involved – from diet and exercise to emotional well-being and living conditions. And it will take time.
As you evaluate your options for weight loss surgery, be sure to consider not just the surgery itself but also the need for ongoing maintenance and support. Weight loss surgery is the first step, enabling you to transform your lifestyle to achieve lasting health.
The Weight Loss Surgery Center at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s is committed to delivering the expertise, skills and services you need to achieve your long-term weight loss goals and lifestyle transformation.
Center of Excellence
Our institution has been recognized as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence by the American Society of Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery (ASMBS)
This designation is granted only to those programs with years of experience and expert surgeons. It reflects a commitment to comprehensive patient care and excellent surgical outcomes.
The practice is led by Dr. Tom Brown, a board-certified general and bariatric surgeon with more than 25 years of clinical experience, ten of which have been dedicated to bariatric surgery. Dr. Brown is one of the leading laparoscopic surgeons in Colorado, and has performed 2,000 bariatric surgical procedures.
Our on-staff support team, including physicians, nurses, dieticians, and mental health experts focus on understanding the situation and challenges that make each person unique. This support ecosystem spans initial contact to post-surgery as patients become advocates for others who face similar challenges.
