At Huntington Internal Medicine Group (HIMG), an outpatient center of St. Mary’s Medical Center, we strive to provide quality individualized care to improve patient’s everyday lives and overall health. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 39% of U.S. adults 20 years and older are obese and about 9% are extremely obese. With the obesity epidemic on the rise, we have dedicated a team to offer you a surgical solution.
Obesity is currently listed as the second leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States. With obesity comes a higher risk for other diseases and health risks such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, stroke or even heart attack. Our mission is to lead our patients to live a healthier and more active lifestyle by providing them with the education needed to succeed in their surgical weight loss journey.
At HIMG, Dr. Matthew Hofeldt, MD, FACS, and Lana Hofeldt, PA-C, work hard to provide patients with the option of a gastric sleeve. Over the years, the gastric sleeve has grown in popularity as one of the most popular methods of surgical weight loss. As of 2019, the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery estimated the gastric sleeve to make up over 50% of weight loss surgeries performed in the United States. Join us to learn about the gastric sleeve for surgical weight loss so we can start you on the track to a successful weight loss journey.
