Center for Bariatric Surgery and Weight-Loss Management
Welcome to The Valley Hospital's Center for Bariatric Surgery and Weight-Loss Management, where our goal is to offer exceptional, comprehensive care.
Pursuing weight loss is a very personal choice, which patients come to after great deliberation. We believe in taking a personalized approach to care and empowering each patient to make healthy lifestyle changes, whether through surgical options or medically-managed weight loss. Weight-loss surgery can be also be referred to as bariatric surgery or metabolic surgery. Through a multi-disciplinary approach, we provide our patients with the tools to lose weight successfully, maintain their successes and live healthier, fuller lives. The team is led by Medical Director Melissa Bagloo, M.D., and also includes a nurse practitioner, a bariatric nutritionist, psychologists, exercise physiologists and a dedicated office staff all vested in helping you achieve your success. Free monthly support group meetings also help to create a network where patients can help each other reach their goals and sustain their accomplishments.
Weight loss is a journey and we aim to partner with you at every step. Our goal is to help you change your body and transform your life!
