Weight Management


More than one third of adults in the United States are obese, but losing the weight is not always easy. In fact, it may be nearly impossible for people with severe obesity to reach a healthy weight through diet and exercise. When that is the case, bariatric surgery, available at Atlantic Health Weight & Wellness Center, may be recommended. We offer laparoscopic or minimally invasive options, like gastric bypass and gastric band procedures, as well as vertical sleeve gastrectomy. Patients also receive pre-surgical education and post-surgical support to help ensure long-term success. Learn more >
