Sam Kaufman CEO Desert Springs HospitalDesert Springs Hospital Medical Center is a premier healthcare provider that has been serving Las Vegas since 1971. Located near the Las Vegas Strip, we offer comprehensive, innovative programs and services, like bariatrics.

Desert Springs Hospital opened the Center for Weight loss Surgery five years ago and it holds national accreditation from the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP). What that means for patients is the hospital and the bariatric staff meet stringent national guidelines established by both the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Society for Metabolic and the Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).

I can personally attest to our program because I had gastric sleeve weight-loss surgery in April of this year. The experience from start to finish was easy, pain free and effective. I have lost more than 100 pounds since the surgery and feel great. I look forward to continuing my success and improving my health. Read the story about my experience with weight-loss surgery here >

This website includes details about the program and the staff. Desert Springs Hospital Medical Center has more than 1,200 employees with experience and training to meet the healthcare needs of all of our patients … including our weight-loss surgery patients.

I invite you to visit the hospital while you are here to learn about how we can help individuals start their journey to better health through surgical weight loss.
