The journey to a healthier you can be hard, especially when constant dieting and other weight loss programs just haven’t delivered. Sometimes, it means getting the right medical care and hands-on support you need for lasting success.
Weight Loss Surgery at Flaget Memorial Hospital has helped thousands of people throughout Central Kentucky reclaim their health and lives. Our board-certified surgeon, Dr. Robert Farrell, performs a full range of weight loss procedures, using the most minimally invasive techniques available for less pain and faster recovery.
And our program isn’t just about weight loss. Bariatric surgery can help reduce or reverse diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol and acid reflux (GERD). Our patients also benefit from less joint pain, better sleep, more confidence and the freedom to live an active and healthier life.
