Meet McLaren: Bariatrics


 
Meet McLaren: Bariatrics 

Greater Lansing area patients now have access to a high-quality, accredited program should they choose to pursue bariatric surgery with the guidance of their primary care physician. 

The program’s telemedicine capabilities make it possible for patients to receive most of their care close to home. Much of the surgical weight loss journey can occur through virtual visits with the bariatric and metabolic institute team and the support of their primary care physician. Surgical procedures will take place at McLaren Flint. 

The institute is recognized as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program.
