Overlake Medical Clinics Weight Loss Surgery
We are dedicated to curing morbid obesity through advanced surgery as part of a comprehensive program.
Dr. Thien K. Nguyen is one of few fellowship-trained weight loss surgeons in the region, and the Medical Director of Bariatric Surgery at Overlake Hospital Medical Center. If you have questions about obesity surgery and would like to speak with Dr. Nguyen directly, call 425-467-3957 or send him an e-mail.
Obesity is the second leading cause of preventable death in the United States (after smoking). However, less than 5 percent of people with severe obesity (80-100 pounds or more overweight) are able to lose this weight with exercise and dieting. When these efforts have failed, you and your doctor should discuss weight loss (bariatric) surgery, and whether it is right for you.
Our office is located at 1120 112th Ave. NE, Suite 101, in Bellevue.
