Welcome to the Weight and Wellness Center
Our mission is to engage and empower individuals with the tools necessary to live healthier lives. Through surgical and non-surgical approaches to weight loss, our experienced and compassionate providers are committed to helping patients achieve safe, effective long term results.
The Weight and Wellness Center at Tufts Medical Center is among the top programs in the country. We are a national 'Center of Excellence' as designated by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).
What sets us apart:
- We are one of the largest surgical programs in New England
- We have conducted more than 4,000 laparoscopic bariatric surgeries
- Almost all of our operations (95%) are done laparoscopically – which means our patients can enjoy smaller scars, a faster, safer recovery and less chance of infection
- A full support team including behavior therapists, nutritionists, physicians, surgeons and nurses exclusively dedicated to nutritional and obesity-related issues
Founded in 1985, our clinic has achieved excellent results, having treated several thousand patients. We evaluate each patient's needs to create a specific treatment plan within our program. Using a multidisciplinary approach, we bring together talented clinicians in nutrition, medicine, behavioral psychology, physical activity and surgery to help our patients achieve medically significant weight loss.
