Bariatric Surgeons James Pilkington, M.D., Ernest Cudjoe, M.D., Jeffrey Smith, M.D., and Jeffrey L. Bonacci, M.D.
With MidMichigan Health’s Bariatric Surgery Program, patients who have been unsuccessful in the past with traditional weight loss methods can find new hope. Research has shown that, with surgical assistance, patients typically lose 60 percent of excess weight in the first year following bariatric surgery. Even better, 90 percent of problems such as diabetes, sleep apnea, high blood pressure and depression are typically resolved or controlled. Our bariatric surgeons have performed more than 2,100 bariatric surgeries with nearly 100 percent of the surgeries being done laparoscopically.
