At the Lancaster General Health Healthy Weight Management & Bariatric Surgery program, our team has proven expertise in both surgical and non-surgical weight loss treatments. Our surgeons perform minimally invasive, laparoscopic surgical procedures including sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, and the duodenal switch. Our surgeons are fellowship-trained in bariatric surgery. Our non-surgical program is led by two physicians board-certified in obesity medicine. 

Both options include support from dietitians, exercise physiologists, nurses and behavioral medicine specialists. We also offer monthly support groups and a fitness center that is exclusively for our patients. 

Our comprehensive approach to weight loss is designed to help you reach a healthy weight—and maintain it for life.
