For people struggling with excess weight, the new year is a fresh opportunity to meet their weight loss goals. There are a variety of options available, and it is important that each individual finds a weight loss solution tailored to their unique needs and provides the tools and support structure to help them succeed. For patients with morbid obesity, generally defined as being 100 pounds or more overweight, bariatric surgery may be an option.
For more than 20 years, the multidisciplinary team of bariatric specialists at the Penn Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Program have provided comprehensive weight loss care, including free information sessions, personalized treatment plans and the latest, most advanced treatment options. Penn’s bariatric surgeons perform more than 700 procedures each year, making it the most active program in the greater Philadelphia region.
