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:
- Nutritional and physical evaluations
- 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.

- Comprehensive program including personal trainers, exercise classes and weekly support groups
- Gastric bypass
- Gastric sleeve
