About Midwest Bariatric Solutions
bariatric solutions, bariatric surgery, morbid obesity, bariatric patients
Certified Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence® At Midwest Bariatric Solutions of Northeast Wisconsin, we are experts in weight loss/bariatric surgery.

Our Fox Valley clinic - a certified Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence - offers a complete, multi-disciplinary program with surgeons Dr. Georgen and Dr. Wasco who are devoted to the care and treatment of people suffering from morbid obesity. We focus specifically on Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, either laparoscopic or open. These weight loss surgeries are most effective in treating morbid obesity and its associated co-morbidities and are recognized as the "gold standards" in the field today.

However, we don't limit ourselves to performing only bariatric surgery. We feel very strongly that by doing all types of surgery, including trauma and critical care, we're better prepared to deal with our bariatric patients who are often the sickest of all.

What are the Health Risks of Obesity?
One of the main reasons Midwest Bariatric Solutions has become very active in bariatric surgery is that we've had to deal with the aftermath of the morbid obesity disease. This relates to significant co-morbidities such as:
  • Diabetes complications
  • Gastric reflux disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Internal hernia
  • Sleep apnea
  • Joint problems
  • Higher instances of certain types of cancers and gall bladder disease
A common root cause of many of these problems is morbid obesity. It's our feeling that if we can treat the root cause of these problems, we can perhaps cure them, or at least improve them dramatically.

With that in mind, Midwest Bariatric Solutions specializes in the most current and effective operations to treat morbidly obese patients.

"Bariatric patients can be some of the sickest patients there are. Our background in critical care and trauma helps when we perform these surgeries. There is no substitute for experience when dealing with the bariatric patient."
