Healthgrades Five Stars in Bariatric Surgery for 2013

Parker Adventist Hospital has achieved the Five Stars in Bariatric Surgery for 2013 according to Healthgrades, the leading online resource that helps consumers search, compare and connect with physicians and hospitals. This recognition distinguishes us as a top performing hospital in bariatric surgery.

Excellence in Weight Loss Surgery

Our bariatric surgeon, Dr. Joshua Long is experienced in the most advanced, proven, surgical techniques including gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, duodenal switch and loop duodenal switch, LAP-BAND® surgery and surgical revisions. Non-surgical weight loss options are also available.

The duodenal switch and loop duodenal switch are the most effective treatments for type II diabetes and weight loss.

  • The duodenal switch has been shown to resolve close to 99% of type II diabetes and achieve close to 100% excess weight loss in some patients.
  • The duodenal switch is also a very effective revision option after sleeve gastrectomy.
  • Dr. Long spends time with each patient to select the option that is most likely to result in long term weight loss success.

    A new post-operative pain management protocol has been implemented which effectively eliminates more than 90% of post-operative pain and decreases the need for narcotics.

    Achieving dramatic, sustainable weight loss is within your reach, and the team at the Bariatric & Metabolic Center of Colorado (BMCC) can help!
