Compassionate Care

At Bayfront Health Port Charlotte, we understand that weight loss is a complicated issue, and it requires a supportive community to make lasting changes. We love the opportunity to walk alongside our patients through the entire process, providing both trusted medical guidance and compassionate emotional support. In addition, we have a $0 program fee to help you get started. When it comes down to it, this is far more than a medical procedure—it's a chance for a fresh start, a boost of confidence, and a newfound hope for what the rest of your life can look like.

Wondering whether a weight loss procedure is the right fit for you, and not sure if you're ready to talk to a doctor?

A Variety of Procedures Customized for You

Losing weight can be incredibly hard, both physically and emotionally. Many people struggle with their weight for years and years and just can't seem to get ahead. If that sounds familiar, it may be time for you to consider a bariatric weight loss surgery. Our surgeons regularly perform several weight loss procedures:

  • Gastric Bypass
  • Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy
  • Revision Surgeries
  • Conversion Surgeries
  • Nonsurgical Intragastric Balloon Procedure
  • Laparoscopic Procedures
  • Medically-Supervised Weight-Loss Program

We want to make sure our patients are comfortable with what to expect at every point in the process. As part of that, we offer regular seminars with one of our bariatric doctors. We also offer a free online assessment to help determine if surgery is right for you.


My life no longer revolves around food. I fill each day with amazing friends and family.*   

"I felt confident with [Dr. Roelant's] knowledge of the procedure and was impressed that the program was so intensive. I heard about the program through my interactions with Kelly the coordinator. I had worked with her when she was a nurse on the third floor. She met with me several times and reassured me that this was a great option," says Rebecca. 

Since the procedure, Rebecca feels “transformed” and has lost 80 pounds, saying her priorities and lifestyle in general have changed radically. She also has found a sense of support and friendship within the bariatric community. “I am now able to shop in regular clothing stores, which feels amazing. People are always complimenting my weight loss and transformation,” says Rebecca.
