Bariatric Surgery from Hallmark Health: Powerful Weight Loss Solutions for Residents of North Reading, MA & Nearby Communities

Bariatric surgery North Reading MA The latest advances in bariatric surgery are available at Hallmark Health Medical Associates (HHMA) – a multispecialty medical group serving residents of North Reading and other communities throughout northeast Massachusetts. If you are ready to lose weight, gain energy, and embark on a new, healthy lifestyle, the experienced bariatric specialists at our Center for Weight Management and Weight Loss Surgery are here to help. Our center is designated as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence by the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery, and our weight loss program has been awarded “Blue Distinction” from Blue Cross and Blue Shield.

Bariatric surgery may be appropriate for individuals who are more than 100 pounds overweight or who have a BMI (body mass index) over 40. At HHMA, our weight loss surgeons use minimally invasive techniques that require much smaller surgical incisions, reduce post-surgical discomfort, and streamline the overall recovery process compared to traditional surgery.

Bariatric surgery is an umbrella term for several procedures that restrict stomach size or change the way in which the body processes food, with the goal of helping patients lose weight. The bariatric procedures we perform at HHMA include:

  • Roux-en-y gastric bypass procedures
  • Laparoscopic gastric band procedures with LAP-BAND®
  • Vertical sleeve gastrectomy procedures

HHMA’s bariatric surgeons work closely with physicians certified by the American Board of Obesity to ensure our patients experience the highest level of bariatric care possible.

As an HHMA patient, you’ll never walk your weight loss journey alone. Following surgery, our team will continue to closely monitor your progress, refine your weight loss plan as necessary, and provide comprehensive support and encouragement. We will be there for you as you reach your goals and enjoy a healthier, happier life.

Don’t allow your weight to hold you back from participating in the activities you love any longer. To learn if you are a candidate for bariatric surgery at Hallmark Health Medical Associates, please contact us today. We are proud to serve patients throughout North Reading, MA, and all surrounding communities.
