It's time to begin your journey to a healthier you with a proven long-term weight loss solution. Bariatric surgery offers hope and help to those who have tried repeatedly to lose excess weight and keep it off!
Weight loss is only one benefit of bariatric surgery – it can also help improve or resolve pre-existing medical conditions associated with obesity, such as Type 2 diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), high cholesterol, polycystic ovarian syndrome, obstructive sleep apnea, joint pain and gastroesophageal reflux disease.
The Center for Surgical Weight Loss at Hahnemann University Hospital offers two bariatric surgery options:
Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
These surgical procedures are tools designed to help patients achieve optimal weight loss.
Bariatric surgery is designed for those with a
body mass index equal to or greater than 40, or a body max index equal to or greater than 35, with one or more serious co-morbid conditions.

Blue Distinction Centers (BDC) met overall quality measures, developed with input from the medical community. A Local Blue Plan may require additional criteria for providers located in its own service area; for details, contact your Local Blue Plan. Blue Distinction Centers+ (BDC+) also met cost measures that address consumers’ need for affordable healthcare. Each provider’s cost of care is evaluated using data from its Local Blue Plan. Providers in CA, ID, NY, PA, and WA may lie in two Local Blue Plans’ areas, resulting in two evaluations for cost of care; and their own Local Blue Plans decide whether one or both cost of care evaluation(s) must meet BDC+ national criteria. National criteria for BDC and BDC+ are displayed on www.bcbs.com. Individual outcomes may vary. For details on a provider’s in-network status or your own policy’s coverage, contact your Local Blue Plan and ask your provider before making an appointment. Neither Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association nor any Blue Plans are responsible for non-covered charges or other losses or damages resulting from Blue Distinction or other provider finder information or care received from Blue Distinction or other providers.”
