Ochsner Health- Northshore, based in Slidell, Louisiana, is considered a “Center of Excellence” by MBSAQIP. We offer an accredited comprehensive weight loss program backed by the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.
Ochsner Health- Northshore offers a multidisciplinary approach in a boutique-type feel to surgical weight loss. Our surgeon, nutritionist, nurses, and financial counselor are available to you both before and after surgery. Meeting with our team is uniquely different than other bariatric programs as our surgeon interacts with you on a 1:1 basis from the initial visit and throughout your weight loss journey. We also offer surgical support groups, meal replacement programs, body composition analysis before and after surgery, and connect via Baritastic, a phone app to help you engage with your providers, stay organized, and achieve your wellness goals.
Our award-winning surgeon, Dr. Asahel Gridley, has extensive experience in bariatric surgery including laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and laparoscopic gastric bypass. Dr. Gridley also performs laparoscopic and robotic general surgeries, including gallbladder, hernia, foregut, appendix, and reflux surgeries.
Our main office is located in Slidell, Louisiana, but we have satellite offices in Covington, Louisiana and Bay St. Louis, Mississippi.
For the convenience of our patients, we perform surgery at several local hospitals:
- Ochsner Health- Northshore
