Bariatric Surgery (Weight Loss Surgery) at Hahnemann 
Surgical Weight Loss 

Let the Weight be Over

For the severely obese, carrying around excess weight is not only life threatening, but may limit life activities others take for granted.  Severe obesity means being overweight to the point where your body may be prone to diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and a wide range of other serious disorders.

The Center for Surgical Weight Loss at Hahnemann University Hospital offers surgical hope and help to those who have tried repeatedly to lose excess weight and keep it off.

The surgical procedures performed at Hahnemann University Hospital include Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass, Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding, and Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy.  These procedures are tools that allow you more control over your consumption of food.

Our multidisciplinary medical team of physicians, psychologists, anesthesiologists, nurses and dietitians works together to assess each patient’s needs and help them achieve a healthier lifestyle.  Our goal is to help you Let the Weight be Over!
