Healthy Weight Management & Bariatric Surgery at Lancaster General Health

Our Healthy Weight Management & Bariatric Surgery team offers a comprehensive approach to weight loss that is designed to help you reach and maintain a healthy weight for life.

Weight Loss Surgery
Our team is led by three board-certified surgeons that have expertise in sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, and other minimally invasive procedures. We take a whole-person approach to weight loss that includes assistance from dietitians, exercise physiologists, nurses and behavioral medicine specialists. When managed by an expert team like the one at Lancaster General Health, bariatric surgery is a powerful weight-loss solution.

Weight Loss Without Surgery
As an alternative to surgery, we offer physician counseling and low-calorie diet programs for patients who are overweight or obese, using the New Direction Weight Control System. The programs are designed to support long-term success. Click here to sign up for a medically managed weight loss seminar or call our office at 717-544-2935.
