Weight Loss Surgery

Rebecca - Before and After

If excess weight is affecting your daily life or health, weight loss surgery may help you finally achieve long-lasting results.

The Jeanes Bariatric Program Provides:

Customized Care for Every Patient

Every patient first meets with a board-certified surgeon. Then, based on a comprehensive evaluation, the best surgical option is clearly explained. At Jeanes, our main concern is the safety, comfort and long-lasting results of each patient.

A Safe Hospital Environment

Unlike free-standing clinics, Jeanes Hospital provides medical, surgical and emergency services. Bariatric patients often have multiple medical issues and special surgical risks. This is why the bariatric surgeons at Jeanes remain committed to a hospital environment. Although they are specialists in weight loss surgery, they are never isolated, and neither are our patients.

A Specialized, Patient-Friendly Facility

The bariatric surgical center at Jeanes features customized rooms and equipment designed especially for the comfort and safety of the obese patient.

A Full-Time Team of Weight Loss Specialists

Treating only bariatric patients, the staff at Jeanes includes board-certified and university-affiliated surgeons, registered dietitians, licensed psychologists, exercise physiologists, specially-trained nurses and administrative support.

An Extensive Plan for Follow-up Care

Jeanes offers clinical visits, diet and lifestyle counseling, education and personal support to help patients achieve long-lasting results.

An Ideal Setting Close to Home

This comprehensive approach – available at downtown academic medical centers – is available in the convenient, neighborhood setting of Jeanes Hospital.
