If you've struggled with obesity - and traditional weight loss solutions - you're far from alone: according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, more than 1 in 20 Americans over the age of 20 are morbidly obese, increasing their risk for type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke, and keeping them from the happy and active life they deserve.

Take the First Step to a New You

Whether you need help making dietary and lifestyle changes, or are considering weight loss surgery, Chestnut Hill Hospital can put you on the path to lasting success.

Care for the Whole You

Weight loss is about more than physical transformation. Our weight loss surgery team - featuring a dedicated dietitian, psychologist and nurse specialists - is here to meet your emotional and behavioral needs as well. Working closely with you and your primary care physician, we'll create an individualized plan to promote positive change, inside and out.

Minimally Invasive Techniques

The thought of surgery can bring some unease, but you'll find peace of mind with our minimally invasive weight loss procedures. We use laparoscopic techniques for gastric bypass, gastric sleeve and more - which may result in less pain and scarring, fewer complications, a shorter hospital stay and quicker recovery for you.

Private and Personalized Support

Your weight loss journey is personal, and our care is, too. Start with a free, private consultation with our Bariatric Surgery Program Coordinator, who will walk through your history and goals, answer any questions and see if a weight loss procedure is right for you.

Patient results may vary. Consult your physician about the benefits and risks of any surgical procedure or treatment.
