Begin your journey to successful, long-term weight loss.
Our dedicated team provides comprehensive, personalized metabolic and bariatric treatment options to help you reach your weight-loss goals. Whether through our state-of-the-art surgical option or the medical weight management program, Overlake has the tools to help you reach your ideal weight.
At the heart of the Overlake metabolic and bariatrics program is an experienced and welcoming team—surgeons, nutritionists, nurses and therapists—who are all specially trained in bariatric medicine. Together, they provide the support, education and follow-up that’s critical to weight loss success—not just weeks or months after surgery, but for a lifetime.
One year after having weight loss surgery and losing over 150 pounds, Dave Schmidt, 56, feels healthier than ever and is back to doing the things he loves most—with one notable change. “I volunteer as Santa for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. For the last 10 years, I haven’t needed a pillow to give the appearance of a round belly. When you weigh over 350 pounds, you probably have a believable belly,” Dave laughs. “Over the holidays, my new motto was, ‘Bring back the pillow!’”
