About Us

Welcome to the Central Baptist Hospital Surgical Weight Loss Center Blog! We are very excited to offer the most comprehensive weight loss surgery program in Central Kentucky.

Our Center of Excellence Surgeons, Dr. G. Derek Weiss and Dr. John S. Oldham, Jr. of Bluegrass Bariatric Surgical Associates are among the foremost minimally invasive bariatric surgeons in the country, if not the world. Bluegrass Bariatric Surgeons perform the Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, the Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding (lap band or Realize band surgery), and are the most experienced Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy surgeons in Central Kentucky. Our surgeons are among a very small number of expert surgeons in the country to offer the Laparoscopic Greater Curvature Plication (LGCP). Also, the bariatric surgeons of Central Baptist Hospital’s Surgical Weight Loss Center remain some of the only surgeons offering the first incisionless surgery for weight regain after bypass surgery, known as the ROSE procedure.

Our program is comprehensive; we provide the support, guidance, education and encouragement before you make the decision to have bariatric surgery and continue that relationship long after you’ve had surgery. Central Baptist Hospital Surgical Weight Loss Center is here for you.
