Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Program

At MetroWest Medical Center, we are more than just experts in weight loss surgery – we are people who understand how difficult weight management can be. 

Our accredited program provides an effective solution for adults that struggle with severe weight problems, but we also know that weight management and weight loss does not start or end with surgery. We offer a comprehensive approach that provides resources before and after your surgery, and is part of what makes the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Program at MetroWest Medical Center so unique.

Your Partner for Bariatric Surgery

We offer monthly meetings for our patients to share, listen, and discuss their weight loss journey. These meetings are also a great place for new patients to meet our physicians and medical staff and learn more about weight loss surgery. Due to COVID-19, meetings are being held virtually. Visit mwmc.com/events for more information on these important monthly meetings.


Weight loss surgery is generally designed for those with a body mass index (BMI) equal to or greater than 40, or equal to or greater than 35 with serious co-morbidities. Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding is also FDA-approved for weight loss surgery in people with a BMI of 30 to 35 who have at least one obesity-related condition. Weight loss surgery is considered safe, but like many types of surgery, it does have risks. Consult with your physician about the risks and benefits of weight loss surgery.
