We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
For a variety of reasons, diet and lifestyle changes aren’t enough to lose excess weight for patients with obesity, and weight loss surgery is called for. But that surgery doesn’t have to be scary or intimidating. Assisted by cutting-edge da Vinci robots, our surgeons with the Your New Self DMC Weight Loss Solutions program can perform minimally invasive bariatric surgery at Harper University Hospital and Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital. That means less pain, less scarring, and less recovery time, so you can move forward with your healthy new life.
Gastric bypass reduces the size of the stomach by sectioning off a small pouch at the top of your stomach and rerouting your digestive tract to connect it to the pouch. Your smaller stomach can hold less food, resulting in diet and lifestyle changes that can lead to significant weight loss.
During sleeve gastrectomy—also known as gastric sleeve surgery—most of your stomach is removed. (With this procedure, there’s no need to reroute your digestive tract.) The new, sleeve-shaped stomach can hold less food, contributing to weight loss as part of your weight loss plan.
Note: This surgery is designed for individuals with a body mass equal to or greater than 40, or equal to or greater than 35 with serious co-morbidities
