Welcome to Tufts! We are one of the oldest, leading weight management programs in New England. Our surgeons were the first to perform the Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass, Lap Band, and VBLOC procedures and one of the first to perform the Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy. Considered a “Center of Excellence” by MBSAQIP, we have assisted over 6,000 patients get their lives back through successful weight-loss surgeries.
Patients in our surgery program can expect to work closely with a multidisciplinary team consisting of a behavioral provider, dietitian, and physician’s assistant, attend a surgical orientation meeting and meet 1:1 with a surgeon to decide together about the optimal procedure for his/her lifestyle. We also offer a pre-surgical support group, a meal replacement program, patient mentor program, body composition analysis before and after surgery, and connection to Tufts via Baritastic, a phone app to help you engage with your providers, stay organized, and achieve your wellness goals.
Our dedicated and compassionate multidisciplinary team is here to guide you on your journey to better health and to empower you to make the lifestyle changes that help you feel your best. Patients tell us time and time again that they are impressed with the expert level of care, personal attention, and unwavering support that they receive from the team at the Weight and Wellness Center. As you navigate through our program you will experience the commitment of our staff and know that you are working with a true “Center of Excellence” Program.
