The Commonwealth Weight Loss Center in Stoneham, Massachusetts is a dynamic surgical practice with an excellent track record and an outstanding reputation. The Center was established by Dr. Andras Sandor in 2005 and patient education and safety has been our primary focus.
Our philosophy is patient centered care and we provide all the tools necessary for a successful outcome.
The journey starts with the information seminar that takes about an hour to complete, but it is available online any time at the patient’s convenience. The initial office consultation is with Dr. Sandor who will lay out the schedule of the subsequent tests and evaluation. Scheduled follow ups with our dedicated physician assistant, Molly Reilly, PA-C, assure that no one falls off the wagon and the tests and consultations are performed on a timely basis. The time from the initial consultation to the surgery usually takes about 4 to 6 months.
Our office is very accessible, about 10 minutes from downtown Boston with free parking. The surgeries are performed either at Winchester Hospital or at Lawrence Memorial Hospital in Medford, both are designated centers of excellence in bariatric surgery. Hospital stay is typically 1-2 nights following surgery.
There is a tight follow up schedule following surgery and regular support groups are also available. For more information, videos, educational material, please check out our website.
