Bariatric Surgery

Adolescent Bariatric Surgery Patient Outcome Data

At the Bariatric Center of the Rockies, we have been performing adolescent (ages 14 to 20) weight-loss surgery since 1995. The average patient information/outcomes for those surgeries are:

  • Pre-surgery body mass index: 48 percent
  • Post-surgery body mass index: 33 percent
  • Average excess weight loss: 68 percent
  • Mortalities: 0
  • Major complications: 0

Additionally, obesity-related health conditions, including type II diabetes, sleep apnea, pulmonary embolism and congestive heart failure, have been resolved in the vast majority of our patients.

For more information, please contact our bariatric patient navigator.
