Our roots in performing weight loss surgery go back more than 30 years with the pioneering efforts of the late Dr. George Blackburn.
We are one of Boston's oldest and most experienced bariatric centers with a multidisciplinary, dedicated team of specially trained doctors, nurses, dietitians and social workers.
Respect and Dignity, Support and Encouragement
We work to provide caring and understanding through a quality of care that is personal and respects each individual's privacy. We are dedicated to providing education and assistance through the entire weight loss process. Access to all disciplines will provide the tools needed to reduce risks to health and aid in weight loss success.
