Weight Loss Surgery Program
Success is closer than you think. With your will and desire to succeed combined with our expertise and support, your weight loss goals are achievable.
Obesity is a chronic disease and for the vast majority, diets and medication only help with temporary weight loss. For many, surgery is the most effective weight loss option. Our team is committed to changing your life by providing you with the education, support and tools to prepare for a successful journey.
We offer a comprehensive, integrated care program - not simply a surgical procedure. To help our patients achieve a complete lifestyle change, our program pulls together the skills from a variety of Bristol Health specialties. Our multidisciplinary team consists of:
Our Weight Loss Surgery Program is nationally-recognized for its high quality of care, patient safety and for patient satisfaction. It has been designated a comprehensive center by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP). In addition, it has undergone an independent, voluntary and rigorous peer evaluation in accordance with nationally recognized bariatric surgical standards. This accreditation also supports continuous quality improvement and reinforces our commitment to safe and effective outcomes.
Proudly named an institute of quality for exceeding strenuous criteria measures and standards.
Bristol Hospital is designated a Blue Distinction Center for Bariatric Surgery by Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield.
As an MBSAQIP accredited center we meet advanced safety and high-quality care standards for bariatric surgical patients.
The only hospital in Connecticut to receive five consecutive 'A’s since 2017 for patient safety.
Our surgical team consists of board-certified, fellowship-trained surgeons who use minimally invasive robotic techniques to enhance your outcome and speed up your recovery. Each patient is partnered with a surgeon, registered dietitian and or program coordinator to help seamlessly guide you through your weight loss journey.
