About Us

Thanks To My Bariatric Surgery Team I Will Be: Healthy...Active...Self-Confident... and Well into the Future!

St. Francis Center for Advanced Weight Loss, our Bariatric Surgery Program at St. Francis Medical Center, provides obese and morbidly obese patients with non-surgical and surgical options to help achieve their weight loss goals and improve the quality of their lives.

Peter Benotti, M.D., a Board Certified Surgeon with years of Bariatric and surgical experience, leads this comprehensive program. A unique feature of our program is the comprehensive nutritional counseling and behavior modification program that patients go through during both the preoperative and postoperative process.

LifeCare Surgery and Advanced Weight Loss uniquely provides patients with:

  • A 6-month preoperative multidisciplinary behavior modification program that is second to none
  • A comprehensive preoperative workup for all patients
  • Monthly support group sessions for patients and their families
  • Individualized postoperative care to motivate patients in achieving their behavioral, diet, and exercise goals.

We have updated our outpatient and inpatient facilities with state-of-the-art equipment to specifically care for our patients. Surgical options offered include Laparoscopic or Open Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass and Laparoscopic Gastric Banding.

Medical problems associated with obesity such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep apnea and osteoarthritis can be improved or resolved after weight loss surgery. Talk with your primary care physician if you wish to have a consultation to begin your road to successful weight loss.
