Each day, approximately 1/3 of Americans battle the disease of obesity- many of them struggling with numerous unsuccessful diets for years. Obesity affects not only self-esteem and self-image, but it affects one’s health and quality of life. Studies show that bariatric surgery, also known as weight-loss surgery, is the single “most effective and long lasting treatment for morbid obesity and many related conditions, but now mounting evidence suggests it may be among the most effective treatments for metabolic diseases and conditions including type 2 diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and obstructive sleep apnea.”

For patients suffering from morbid obesity, the Sacramento Bariatric and Metabolic Institute offers hope and a new start in life. Dr. Benjamin Shadle, the original founder of the Sacramento Bariatric and Metabolic Institute and now a member of the Sutter Medical Group and the Sutter Weight Management Institute, is a skilled minimally invasive bariatric surgeon dedicated to giving cutting edge, excellent, and compassionate surgical care.  Dr. Shadle is passionate about helping his patients get back to truly living life.

Dr. Shadle is board certified by the American Board of Surgery, and  fellowship trained in bariatric surgery at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Shadle  performs all bariatric procedures (the duodenal switch, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, vertical sleeve gastrectomy, and adjustable gastric banding) as well as revisional surgeries laparoscopically. Dr. Shadle boasts a comprehensive bariatric program that includes pre- and postoperative nutritional counseling for patients and their families, as well as support groups, and life-long follow up.
