Weight Loss Surgery Program

About the 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.

A Comprehensive Weight Loss Center

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:

  • Fellowship-trained surgeons
  • Bariatric APRN
  • Bariatric nurse caregivers
  • Cardiologists
  • Sleep experts,
  • Registered dietitians
  • Behavioral health providers
  • And others
