Bariatric Surgery


Our bariatric surgeons Daniel J. Gagné, MD, FACS, FASMBS, and Jorge E. Urbandt, MD, FACS, FASMBS, and the rest of the bariatric surgery program team have helped more than 2,800 patients achieve a healthier, happier lifestyle through weight-loss surgery.

We have also conducted research in the field and shared our findings in more than 50 published papers and book chapters and more than 120 presentations given nationally and throughout the world.

Our bariatric surgery program has received numerous prestigious recognitions, including:

  • American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery “Center of Excellence” designation
  • Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association “Blue Distinction Center for Bariatric Surgery”

These designations recognize the skill of the surgeons, the quality of the hospital, and the support provided to patients, including psychological, nutritional, and educational support to adjust to lifestyle changes.
