At the Penn Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Program, we're committed to helping you improve your overall health.
While long-term weight loss is the most well-known benefit of bariatric surgery, there are many other things you can gain, too. When used as part of a well-rounded weight-loss plan, bariatric surgery can help improve your quality of life, reverse diabetes, eliminate sleep apnea, help control high blood pressure and reduce your risk of heart disease.
Our expert team works together to provide you with the highest quality of care at every stage of your weight-loss surgery journey. From the time of your free information session to the day of your bariatric surgery — and beyond — you can stay connected with your team both in-office and at your fingertips with our new LifeGained app.
Our program offers a full range of bariatric surgical options, ensuring that you receive the bariatric surgery that's right for you. All bariatric surgery procedures performed at Penn use a minimally invasive approach with either laparoscopy or robotic surgery. Both surgical approaches offer many benefits, including shorter recovery times and less post-operative pain. You and your surgeon will work together to decide which option is right for you.
