Southern California Bariatric Surgery


Congratulations on your decision to learn more about bariatric surgery! Dr. Douglas Krahn and all of his team at Western Bariatric would like to extend a warm welcome to you as you seek out more information and embark on this exciting and life-changing journey. Western Bariatric is based in the Inland Empire, California where Dr. Krahn is the Medical Director of Bariatric Surgery at St. Bernardine Medical Center in San Bernardino and Parkview Community Hospital in Riverside. We have offices in both locations with staff members specifically trained to help you through this process. Both hospitals have been designated as a Center of Excellence by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.

We apply laparoscopic surgery techniques for nearly all of our bariatric surgery operations. Included in the program is a full spectrum of pre-and post-operative care, which is provided by a highly experienced and certified team. We will guide you through the necessary pre-surgical requirements, and we will train you in the tools fundamental to success after bariatric surgery. Nutrition consultations, along with nutritional supplements, support group meetings, and psychological consultations, are among some of the many resources to which our patients have access. We also provide a medical weight loss program for pre-surgical patients and for patients who might not meet criteria for surgery, but still need to lose weight. Please review the patient testimonials of a few of our many happy patients, in order see first-hand what our practice can do for you.
