Learn About Bariatric Surgery at Blount Memorial Hospital.

Register today for a free, no-obligation surgical weight loss seminar.

If you have a Body Mass Index (BMI) between 35-40, have tried and failed multiple times to lose significant weight, and have severe, obesity-related medical conditions, you could be a candidate for bariatric, or weight loss, surgery at the Blount Memorial Weight Management Center in Maryville, Tenn.


Blount Memorial is a Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) accredited center, certifying that our program meets the most-rigorous standards for patient care, professional expertise and proven results.

Cleveland Clinic-trained bariatric and general surgeon Dr. Onyeka Nwokocha leads Blount Memorial’s multidisciplinary team of weight loss professionals. For your convenience, Dr. Onyeka is located onsite at the Weight Management Center, eliminating the need to drive to multiple locations for surgery-related appointments and support groups.
