Penn Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery Program

The Penn Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery Program offers comprehensive care for the “morbidly obese” patient before and after weight loss surgery.  All procedures performed by Penn's Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Program are available using a minimally invasive approach called laparoscopic-assisted surgery, which offers many benefits for patients including shorter recovery times and less post-operative pain.

Because each patient considering bariatric surgery is unique, the Penn Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery Program offers a full range of bariatric surgical options including: adjustable gastric band, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, and robotic-assisted bariatric surgery. This ensures that patients receive the bariatric surgery that will provide them with the best possible results.
