HENDERSONVILLE, TN – TriStar Hendersonville Medical Center is pleased to announce the expansion of our surgical services program with the addition of bariatric surgery. The new program includes a wide array of weight loss surgical options utilizing the latest in minimally invasive techniques.
“TriStar Hendersonville is pleased to offer surgical weight loss options close to home for those north of Nashville,” said Justin Coury, chief executive officer at TriStar Hendersonville. “Providing Sumner County residents comprehensive, life-altering care without going to Nashville is a game changer for our patients seeking this medical option.”
At TriStar Hendersonville, patients will work with our weight loss team to determine the best options for weight loss, including procedures like gastric band removal, gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy and revisional surgeries. These procedures have been shown in long-term medical studies to help patients safely and effectively achieve long-term weight-loss, with over 60 percent of their excess weight. This helps with improving health, mobility and quality of life.
“Weight loss surgery offers patients the opportunity to treat many diseases associated with obesity including diabetes, heart disease, stroke, obstructive sleep apnea and cancer with one procedure,” said Jameil Abou-Hanna, MD, board certified and fellowship-trained bariatric surgeon at TriStar Hendersonville. “I am excited to be able to help patients in Sumner County on their journey to a healthier life.”
