Bariatric Center

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.

Procedures have certain risks and benefits.
