Weight Loss (Bariatric) Surgery

When losing weight is critical to a patient’s health, Greenwich Hospital delivers a 360-degree program of bariatric care that focuses on the “whole person.” From the moment patients begin considering surgery until long after the weight-loss goal has been reached, the team at Greenwich Hospital works with patients on an outpatient basis to achieve the lifestyle and emotional changes needed to sustain weight loss.

Personal Guidance

No two people are alike. That's why the bariatric team at Greenwich Hospital specializes in focused, individualized care. Each patient undergoes a clearance process and is thoroughly educated about the surgery options that best suit his/her medical condition and lifestyle. The program coordinator is there to assist throughout the entire process, including organizing preoperative tests and admission/discharge procedures as well as navigating and understanding insurance benefits.

A Multidisciplinary Team

The bariatric team consists of a program coordinator, board-certified surgeons, dietitian, psychologist, specially trained nurses and other hospital staff, as well as a nutritionist and physical therapist. The surgeon and staff work together to provide the best level of care possible, looking after patients with individual attention and compassion.
