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.

Patient Stories


Jen's Story

"I’m not sure if I have the words to describe the ways this surgery has changed my life.”

After her father passed away from a heart attack, Jen made a promise to change her life and take control of her health. She saw bariatric surgery not as a way to look thin, but as a tool to help her live a healthy life.

Shannon's Story

“Losing the weight and associated health issues has allowed me to discover a life I never knew was possible.“

A chance encounter with a friend and a change in behavior that involved long walks inspired Shannon to commit to bariatric surgery and to healthy living.

Mark's Story

“I wanted to reclaim my life and be able to have fun again.”

Mark was finding he couldn’t get out of bed without pain, much less keep up with energetic Boy Scouts. So he chose bariatric surgery to help get him back on the trail.
