Providing Bariatric Surgery for Bariatric Weight Loss in Willamette Valley, Oregon and Surrounding Areas

Fighting obesity is not easy.

Willamette Valley Medical Center Weight Loss Surgery will partner with you to help you achieve your weight loss goals.

Never-ending struggles with diet and fluctuating weight coupled with constant insecurity can take their toll.  Many find themselves trapped in this endless cycle for years. Fortunately, there is hope.

If you are ready to lose those unwanted pounds and the health problems they cause, we can help.  Weight management is a very personal issue, requiring a customized solution and plan.

Dr. Guillermo Higa, M.D., Bariatric/General Surgeon, and the team, take a one-on-one approach with each patient seeking a weight loss solution. They provide guidance, recommendations and surgical options based on the patient’s medical history needs and lifestyle to determine the best minimally invasive weight loss surgery option.

When you visit our bariatric surgery center located in McMinnville, Oregon, our friendly staff will welcome you and make your visit as comfortable as possible. We always take the time to fully explain treatment options, as well as what you can expect before and after bariatric surgery.

Our team is committed to raising health awareness and educating patients about the weight loss surgery process, from start to finish.

If you are considering weight loss surgery, we invite you to attend a free, no-obligation, Bariatric surgery seminar.
