Adolescent bariatric surgery, or surgical weight loss for teens, is a big decision for your family. But it can be a life-changing procedure for teens who haven't been able to achieve a healthy weight through lifestyle changes alone. When paired with a healthy diet and exercise, bariatric surgery can help your teen lose weight, improve weight-related conditions and lower their risk of chronic diseases in the future.

At Atrium Health Levine Children’s Weight Management, we offer the latest, safest adolescent bariatric surgeries and support for teens ages 13 and up. We help your teen lose weight safely and get on track to the healthy future they deserve.

In addition to surgery, your child and family get the support you need to make healthy lifestyle changes and lower your risk of chronic diseases. We also use an app to help your child as they recover. It lets us track their progress, monitor their condition, send reminders and share helpful resources.

Being an accredited MBSAQIP center means we meet the highest standards for safe, top-quality bariatric surgery. We’re also recognized as a Blue Distinction Center by Blue Cross Blue Shield for delivering exceptional specialized care.
