Bariatric Center

A A A

Weight loss surgery at MaineGeneral's Bariatric Center is more than a surgical procedure - it's a life-altering decision.


Morbid obesity is a complex, chronic disease. 

Bariatric surgery (weight loss) procedures provide the best long-term results when all other therapies have failed. 

We focus on our patients' complete health, including:

  • Psychological
  • Nutritional and physical evaluations
  • Counseling
  • Support groups
  • Long-term coordination of care

Weight loss surgery is not a "magic wand" procedure, but complements diet and exercise in helping overweight patients achieve long-term health and wellness goals. 

Are you a candidate for weight loss surgery?

Services 

  • Comprehensive program including personal trainers, exercise classes and weekly support groups
  • Lap-Band®
  • Gastric bypass
  • Gastric sleeve
Procedures have certain risks and benefits.
 

Success Story: Michelle Boyle

After three boys, Michelle Boyle was looking forward to the birth of her daughter Emily, now four, so she could do all the little girl things, like mother-daughter swimming sessions and planning ballet lessons.


But at 254 pounds, she just didn't have the energy either physically or mentally. 

It was the wake up call she needed.
