Weight-loss surgery experts in northern Colorado
Bariatric Center of the Rockies, a leader in bariatric surgery in Colorado, was founded in 1995 and has been designated as a Center of Excellence by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, Aetna®, Anthem® Blue Cross and Blue Shield (national and Colorado), CIGNA Healthcare of Colorado and UnitedHealthcare®. It is the only program for bariatric surgery in Colorado to be recognized collectively by these programs.
Founded in Fort Collins, Colorado, in 1995 as a shared program between Poudre Valley Hospital and Northern Colorado Surgical Associates, it is our philosophy and goal to provide a range of weight-loss surgery types to all patients who need it and meet the program qualifications, including the Medicare/Medicaid patient population.
Due to the level of skill and expertise of our four bariatric surgeons, we provide surgery and care to patients who are considered high risk. In fact, high-risk patients are oftentimes referred to us for treatment. We also provide gastric bypass, LAP-BAND and sleeve gastrectomy surgeries for adolescents patients.
To date, our board-certified surgeons, under the direction of Bariatric Center of the Rockies Medical Director Robert Quaid, M.D., have performed over 3,000 bariatric surgeries.
Our caring, dedicated team and highly successful patient navigator, the first step in our program's process, help to make the process as seamless as possible. We believe strongly in weight-loss surgery and the positive life-long changes it provides our patients.
