Why Choose Our Weight Loss Surgery Program?
If you've struggled with obesity - and diet and exercise haven't worked - you're not alone: more than 1 in 20 Americans over the age of 20 are morbidly obese, increasing their risk for type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and certain cancers, and keeping them from the happy and active life they deserve.*
Take the First Step to a New You
Whether you need help making dietary and lifestyle changes, or are considering a life-changing weight loss procedure, Pottstown Hospital can help put you on the path to success:
Skill and Experience
The Center is proud to feature board-certified general surgeons ready to help you meet your goals. With fellowship training in bariatrics and advanced laparoscopic surgery, they help men and women throughout Pottstown, Phoenixville, Reading, and Montgomery County enjoy a new lease on life. And care doesn't end with your surgery: they are here to monitor, support, and celebrate your lifelong commitment to wellness.
Minimally Invasive Weight Loss Surgery Options
Facing major surgery can feel overwhelming, but you'll find peace of mind with our minimally invasive weight loss procedures. Our board-certified surgeons specialize in laparoscopic gastric sleeve, gastric bypass and LAP-BAND® surgery, which often allow for greater precision, with fewer incisions. For you, that may mean less pain, scarring and risk of infection, a shorter hospital stay and quicker recovery.
Care for the Whole You
Weight loss is about more than physical transformation. Our dedicated team - featuring a specially trained nurse coordinator, clinical dietitian and other specialists - is here to promote positive change, inside and out. Working closely with you and your primary care physician, we'll create an individualized plan tailored to your unique needs and goals.
Personalized Support Every Step of the Way
Your weight loss journey is personal - and our care is, too. Start with a free, private consultation with our Bariatric Surgery Program Coordinator, who will walk through your history and goals, answer questions and see if a weight loss procedure is right for you.
