Support for your weight loss goals from an expert bariatric care team

Bariatric Surgery at Beth Israel Lahey Health, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton

Bariatric surgery can lead to significant, long-term weight loss, better health and a new outlook on life.

Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Milton is accredited as a Comprehensive Center with Obesity Medicine Qualifications by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP), ensuring our program delivers the highest safety and quality standards to our patients.

Get Started with Bariatric Surgery

Before starting your bariatric surgery journey, you’ll need to attend an online information or live zoom session. During this session, our bariatric surgeons explain the surgery process, as well as discuss the risks and benefits of surgery.

After the information session, a member of our team will reach out to complete the intake process. The intake process reviews basic medical history and insurance criteria to ensure you qualify to screen for weight loss surgery.

If you qualify, you'll be set up with members of our team to begin the screening process at our evaluation center at either Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton or Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Plymouth.

To learn if your insurance coverage will help pay for bariatric surgery, contact your insurance company directly. Ask if bariatric surgery is a covered benefit and if there are any special requirements to proceed. Also, you should know the deductible, coinsurance and copayment amounts that you’re required to pay.
