WRHA Centre for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery
The WRHA Centre for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery is located at the Victoria Hospital. The program is open to adults who reside in Manitoba who meet specific criteria.
Obesity is a complex, chronic disease. Bariatric surgery leads to better health and weight outcomes.
Bariatric surgery may be right for you if:
- you have trouble keeping weight off
- you have trouble losing enough weight, even after making lifestyle changes
- you have health problems that may get better with weight loss
Bariatric surgery is a good treatment for obesity, but it's not a cure, and it isn't right for everyone.
Bariatric surgery is only one of the ways to treat obesity. It works best when it's used along with healthy lifestyle changes. Success is an ongoing effort and commitment.
