Surgical Weight Loss
In collaboration with our colleagues at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, we are pleased to bring Surgical Weight Loss services to Lahey Outpatient Center, Danvers. While the actual surgery will be performed in Burlington, patients will now have the convenience of receiving preoperative and postoperative care close to home.
Lahey Outpatient Center, Danvers Surgical Weight Loss offers a multidisciplinary team approach for treating obesity through a combination of surgery, behavioral health, and nutrition. This multidisciplinary approach is the key to successful long-term weight loss and well-being for your patient.
As part of the offerings, free monthly bariatric information sessions are held at Lahey Outpatient Center, Danvers. These sessions are open to patients and the community, and are facilitated by surgeons and nurse practitioners of the program.
