Erika was tired of always feeling physically and emotionally drained. One day she decided it was time to make a change with bariatric surgery at Penn.
Under the leadership of Noel Williams, MD, FRCSI, director of the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Program, our staff consists of a team of professionals who are experts in their respective fields — nursing, nutrition, psychology and surgery. The team works together to provide patients with the best surgical care, while also helping patients achieve lifestyle and weight loss goals.
We're committed to helping patients achieve their weight loss goals and improve their overall health. Because every patient considering bariatric surgery is unique, our program offers a full range of bariatric surgical options, ensuring that patients receive the bariatric surgery that will provide them with the best possible results.
All bariatric surgery procedures performed here use a minimally invasive approach with either laparoscopy or robotic surgery. Both surgical approaches offer many benefits for patients, including shorter recovery times and less post-operative pain.
The Penn Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Program is accredited a MBSAQIP Accredited Center – Comprehensive at all three of our locations: Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania Hospital and Penn Presbyterian Medical Center.
