WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY

Experience a weight loss transformation through our bariatric surgery program—accredited by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.

The Journey To Your Best Life

More than a third of Americans struggle with obesity. While it’s often caused by poor eating and exercise habits, obesity can also be affected by your genes and conditions like type 2 diabetes or insulin resistance. That means diet and exercise alone aren’t always enough. Here’s what your journey with bariatric, or weight loss, surgery would look like.

STEP 1
EDUCATION

You’ve heard about bariatric surgery from friends or family. Maybe you’ve done research online. But now you want reliable information, to decide whether surgery is right for you.

STEP 2
OPTIMIZATION

You’ve considered your options, consulted your primary care physician, and decided bariatric surgery is right for you. Now it’s time to meet the care team, who will help prepare you for a safe, successful surgery.

STEP 3
OPERATION

Today’s the day! You’ve reached your preoperative weight-loss goal, and you’re ready for surgery. Let’s review your options.

STEP 4
TRANSFORMATION

You’re home! You’ll take some time to recover from surgery, and you will be well on your way to living your best life.

“Now I can rollerblade and ride a bike. I don't need a seatbelt extension on a plane. I went to the Dominican, and I parasailed for the first time. It was on my bucket list for years. I do a lot of activities now. Kayaking. Hiking. I've done four 5Ks! All things I wanted to do or wished I could do, but you know, you're not motivated to do until you lose the weight.”

—Michelle D. from Rochester, NH
